    I am reading about Verizon buying Telogis recently, and now Fleetmatics. I / other concerned parties are still waiting for the details on the Verizon / Telogis deal.

    Telogis, who was a private company, has patents from purchasing publicly traded Remote Dynamics Inc. (RMTD). The shareholders of RMTD were never compensated when Telogis bought RMTD’s assets (including patents). Will Verizon have to pay RMTD’s shareholders now that those patents are owned by publicly traded Verizon?

    Check out RMTD on Investor’s Hub. Everyone is talking/arguing. Nobody knows anything. Been going on since 2008-2009.

      Hi Matt – thanks for the input – is a very murky area indeed and as you say no one really knows what is going on in terms of the shareholders of RMTD. An interesting one to keep watch on as precedents set here could be quite wide reaching…
