Yeah right
<quote>"The plaintiffs are looking to be paid for their intellectual property, not put Google out of business."</quote>

So if the plaintiff gets 50 billion, then Google will still remain in business given that they have much more than that.

Another thing.
Why not just sell the paten to google in the first place. They patented a year before google was made. To me it just sounds like a case of a couple of scientist that want some money.
