Q: Why Was MDB Capital Right, And M-CAM So Very, Very Wrong On AOL Patent Value?

A: Because computers are not capable of truly understanding patentsPeriod.

Joff Wild over at the IAM Blog explained M-CAM’s $290 M prediction as the “absolute ceiling price” of the AOL patent sale quite succinctly (and politely) by noting that the computer analytics firm “seems to have got it horribly wrong.”  Meanwhile, MDB Capital’s Christopher Marlett prediction of a $1 B patent sale turned out to be nearly dead-on. But you’ll have to forgive my ultra-polite, British friend, Joff, because M-CAM is an American company, and this blog primarily caters to an American audience (although anyone across the pond, or anywhere else is always welcome).
