Wyatt放手一搏


对方最多只能出两千万,Wyatt很不甘心决定放手一搏。Wyatt用了什么策略让对方最后为何服软认输提高价格呢?

Wyatt拒绝了对方的offer,并威胁对方要把设计公开到互联网上。对方表示可以申请禁令并起诉索赔。Harvey说Wyatt大不了就是拿不到钱,但原始设计的所有权是他的,如果他改良后重新推出,届时的市价肯定不止你们给的两千万这一点。


词汇句型:

  • stalled on sth. 在某事上停滞不前
  • knock-off 山寨版
  • put the genie back in the bottle 不能把精灵放回瓶子。这个讲法源自西方神话。Genie 亦会做坏事,于是亦会译做恶魔。

      1. $20 million?
        They claim it’s their final offer.
        That’s what it cost to make the prototype. Not to mention my entire savings and two years of my life.
        Wyatt. They know we’re stalled on our injunction. Which means, to them, they’re giving you a fair price as an insurance policy against the risk of possibly losing the interference claim.
        I don’t care what it is to them. It’s not fair.
        Well, fair or not, it’s their final offer.
        You think I should take it?
        I think you should tell them to shove it up their ass. Ladies and gentlemen, I’m terribly sorry, but we have a problem.
        What problem? We came down here because you led us to believe that your client was ready to accept our settlement agreement.
        And I thought he would. Look, I took him the offer. I presented it to him and recommended that he take it. In fact, I urged him to take it. You know what he told me to do? He told me to tell you to shove it up your ass.
        Now, I know you didn’t have me come all the way down here just to tell me that.
        You’re right. That’s not all Wyatt said. He said, rather than spending years fighting this out in court, in 48 hours, he’s going to put this online.
        It’s a little rough, but you get the idea.
        What are you showing us? Is this a website?
        Available at the Suntech domain name.
        All the design plans and calculations have been uploaded.
        Is this online now?
        It can be.
        Which means the whole world will have access to my designs.
        There will be 10 knock-offs of that phone before you can catch a cab back to your headquarters.
        We could file an injunction.
        Not before tomorrow. And once that technology is out there, good luck putting that genie back in the bottle.
        Well, then we’ll sue.
        But my client won’t have any money. What he will have is credit for the initial design. Which, after he incorporates under a different name, will be worth a hell of a lot more money than the $20 million that you’re offering.
        And you’re saying that this was all your client’s idea.
        Yes. That’s what I’m saying.
