I am sure that I am not alone -- confused about all the different litigations going on between the two companies. While the legal spats between the two may continue for a while, we may be seeing some result this August....that would be a relief for everyone.

thank you for posting this summary. I hope that you will keep us updated as things progress. I think it's sad that we are hearing more about litigation than inovation from these companies.

Here's an update.  

The International Trade Commission (ITC) just announced that it would institute an investigation requested by Macronix.

So, this stuff wasn't thrown out.

Meanwhile, Spansion issued a press relesae, in response:

"This decision is standard ITC procedure and is not related to the merits of this case," said Ali Pourkeramati, senior vice president of Flash Memory Business at Spansion. "As the ITC stated in its own press release: 'by instituting this investigation (337-TA-909), the USITC has not yet made any decision on the merits of the case.' We believe that Macronix has requested this investigation without regard to its underlying merit as an attempt to counter our earlier case against Macronix at the ITC. The Macronix patents that have been asserted have questionable validity, lack domestic industry and are not infringed by Spansion products."
