1. there is no guarantee that
google's bid will win.

Others expected to bid include Chinese telecom network company ZTE, Ericsson, which bought most of Nortel's wireless operations, and RPX, which licenses patents on behalf of member clients for a fee.


The so-called stalking horse bid with Google sets a minimum price for other bidders, which can use that offer and its terms as a starting point for their own proposals.
A stalking horse bidder typically receives a break-up fee if its bid does not go through, and it can use that fee in subsequent auction rounds.
