$BB If people think that BlackBerry is going to sell all their QNX, Cylance, and security patents then he or she is smoking dope. That makes absolutely no sense. BlackBerry has 38,000 patents. Also, BlackBerry makes $300 million a year off patents. If they were going to sell them, it would be in the ballpark of at least a $3 billion deal considering the time value of money. Minimum. My guess is that instead of paying a settlement in court, Facebook will buy the messenger patents only and they are trying to determine fair market value.
