Sergey, can I borrow $450 million
Let's say, for the sake of conversation, that you're involved in a fight over patents that you've been consistently losing in the courts, which could ultimately cost you either $450 million PLUS future royalties, if not your very existence as a company.

And let's say there's this HUGE company, flush with cash and an astronomical stock price that has had a tough time breaking into the instant messaging market -- which happens to be right up your alley.

And let's not forget that this same HUGE company has already said it will build wireless networks on the SF peninsula, where your product is almost as ubiquitous as empty Starbucks coffee cups and Giants fans (when they're winning)... and that it's given hints that it's even thinking of building its own dark-fiber network.

Wouldn't YOU cut a deal?
