"[T]here is substantial evidence documents were destroyed from which a juror could
conclude they willfully destroyed in connection with Rambus someday having to
prosecute or defend, most likely prosecute an anticompetitive lawsuit of some kind,
and that a jury could conclude that the documents related to that."
Hon. R. Kramer, S.F Superior court.
Rambus is going to find difficulty in using the superior court to provide it with the monopoly rents that weren't available to it from its "patent" causes of action. Both are part and parcel of its failed litigation strategy:
“Collect royalties on all DRAM
and controllers forever.”
------Good luck with that, idiots------
“5 Year Objectives: All/90%+
DRAMs/controllers pay us royalties . . . – We are ratcheting up royalty rates over time to the
value of the IP”
------Where is Geoff Tate? He was such a "smart" guy.------
"Achieve >30% share of DDR by 2003"
------Who cared about RDRAM when the "leader" thought that co-opting JEDEC standards would be more profitable?-------
------Why would Rambus continue to develop anything when they could just make up patent claims on their 1990 "inventions" that they'd tell the courts any IC must be infringing?------
Wouldn't it be ironic if RMBS found that they were the center of an anti-trust lawsuit, as the defendant by JDEC members; for trying to monopolize and price fixing the DRAM market with RDRAM.
And wouldn't it be funny if RMBS had to pay Samsung and others, the 900 million +, back to the companies that they extracted the payments from.
The evidence is there in their own e-mails!
You might want to review the unanimous jury decision in Hynix v. Rambus. That jury voted 100% pro-Rambus, and 100% contrary to the claims you are making. The jury said that Rambus obtained its monompoly legally, that the patents were infriged, and that Rambus engaged in no malconduct while at JEDEC.
Sorry Xq, you must have gotten something completely wrong! But everybody is free to interpret the available information in the way that suits him best. But I am not sure that is the best for everyone.
Another great article from newsandinsight.thomsonreuters.com 06/15/2011
Should be getting pretty nervous right about now. Some may have already committed perjury and others may find themselves in the position of having to testify. Will they tell the truth about the true goal of RMBS? That is the goal of total market domination and their plans for price fixing their royalty fees.
Someone from RMBS will come forward with documents and testimony. They will consider the cost of perjury and jail time versus doing the right thing and freedom. Maybe that person has already come forward. If I was a peon working for RMBS, I would sure be saving documents to CMA. A leaking pot never holds water long.
Well, we already know that some of the cartel price fixers (which included Micron, but they got an amnesty, because they betrayed their "friends") had to go to jail after the DOJ investigation.
Reviewed your links. Great post
It appears RMBS wanted 100% of the market and then they would start raising the royalty fees to %5. It appears that RMBS was trying to force the adoption of RDRAM on all the chip producers. What a scam.
