Vringo (VRNG[1]) had a massive victory against Google (GOOG[2]) which sent VRNG stock skyrocketing on Wednesday.

VRNG stock[3]A judge ruled in favor[4] of the small patent company which had a patent dispute with Google, AOL (AOL[5]), IAC/InterActiveCorp (IACI[6]), Gannett (GCI[7]) and Target (TGT[8]). Vringo sued these companies, alleging infringement of two of its advertising patents which the companies used to place advertisements on their Internet-search results.

Back in November 2012, the patent company won the case against Google but a judge determined that Google’s new advertising system continued to infringe Vringo’s patent. As a result, the judge raised the royalty rate from 3.5% to 6.5%.

The royalties that Vringo will receive from these companies could bring the company’s value up to $1 billion. VRNG stock is up 26% Wednesday.
