Not Biting

"Every day we're amazed at how victories in court don't necessarily lead to settlements. We really need the courts to help force these parties into settlement talks. We're not having as much momentum in signing new business as we've liked."

- Sharon Holt of Rambus, quoted in a well-written article in the New York Times.

Same Rambus that took part in a standards-setting group, quietly patented the standard, and got away with it?

Small wonder no one wants to do business with them. It has nothing to do with patents, it's about trust.

Rambus invented and patented synchronous DRAM in the early nineties, years before they even set foot into the snake pit called JEDEC.

The Rambus patented innovations were and still are revolutionary as they enabled and still enable SDRAM, DDR, DDR2, DDR3, GDDR, GDDR2, GDDR3, GDDR4, GDDR5, FB-DIMM and cutting edge SOC's

Rambus was totally cleared of any and all wrong doings by several federal and appeal courts. Your now disproved allegations make you at best a clueless nit wit or at worse an aider and abeter of a criminal cartel.

In just six months when the AT trial against the criminal DRAM cartel is set to begin (and if the criminal cartel is stupid enough not to settle with Rambus) you will totally reevaluate the definition of Trust…
