re: Update: Patent office rejects Rambus claims

NO RATINGS
With Regard to 'null'. In most of the legal cases Rambus is being sued by other companies in an effort to nullify their patents. Most press has been about a coordinated attack on rambus where Micron sued in delaware and hynix sued in california in an attempt to bankrupt the company. Rambus's inventions are ground breaking (invented in the 80s and early 90s by some EE professors, Stanford I believe) and were shown to the memory manufacturers in the 90s. Rather than licensing the patents the manufacturers proceeded to try to bleed rambus to death and also started price fixing SDR DDR in order to drive the RDRAM from the market. Hopefully we'll see all the details in the Jan 2010 price fixing case. Too bad we won't see Mike Sadler, Microns main price-fix'in man on the stand. In the last case where he testified the Jury Foreman summed up this Micron employee as a 'Lying Sack of Sh*t'.
