Wow... I wonder if they will settle.

I doubt they would give him 67 big ones but perhaps 10 mill will get him off their backs

Becoming a billionaire for sharing a simple idea.
A billionaire? :rolleyes: Think the figure is around 6 mill which is probably a tiny cut for an idea Voda has probably made literal billions off.

I don't think that will do, remember the lawyers who represented him will also want / get their cut and they have invested a lot of time and money on this case.

If only Vodacom settled this out of court long time ago.

Yes, they should have thrown him some change ages ago.

Correct. Lawyers get +\-10% of the payout. That's why this kept going!

Smiling all the way to the bank isn't he! At some point I felt it was an unwinnable case.
