Digimarc - Outsiders tout, insiders sell

Digimarc, a company who recently has begun attempting to commercialize a retail barcode technology that is designed to speed up transactions, has been getting quite a bit of press from at least one company who has admitted being long the stock.    

A website called Seeking Alpha has been touting the stock. See column - http://seekingalpha.com/article/3219666-is-the-digimarc-barcode-inevitable
 
The stock is up so far this year, but the CEO and others have been busy selling shares.  Image source - Yahoo Finance.

What is interesting is the adamant (unrelenting) defense of the technology and company, by the columnist at Seeking Alpha, and others who comment on the blog.  
 
A key question is will the licensing income be sufficient to get rid of the red ink and offer a return to shareholders.   The company net income has declined in the last three years, swinging from a gain to a loss (data and link below).
