RC has been trying to off-load some significant number of patents, selling those they think have limited value for licensing. Last I read they haven't been very successful doing so.

Rockstar is still by definition an NPE, which many here less politely call a patent troll when it's Apple being sued by one.And you're correct that the licensing fee is almost certainly a relative pittance if both Cisco and especially Google were willing to pay rather than fight (thus the $188M guesstimate) Historically Google has been excellent at challenging patent...
