Micron alone destroyed Rambus and Intel's plans to dominate the computer main memory market by aggressive pricing on, by then, eight and five year old technology that Intel wasn't even ready at that point to make efficient use of? Intel's plot to gain "strategic advantage" by eliminating standard FRAND accessible memory interfaces in favor of the proprietary product of a predatory expansionist monopolist was foiled by Micron alone?
How much should the jury award to micron for having been the white knight who rode to the rescue of the open, competitive marketplace? Certainly Rambus has hardly a pot to piss in after squandering its ill gotten gains on frivolous litigation, hush money and bad "investments" so they're in no position whatsoever to compensate anyone for the damage they've done. Not to mention the damage they intend to do as soon as someone is dumb enough to give them enough to hire another unscrupulous shyster.
It seems they put a bit of a crimp in Samsung's price gouging campaign at the same time.
Wasn't it Dell conspiring with Intel to deceive Rambus into thinking they weren't going to get canned so that Farmwald wouldn't squeal to the FTC as he'd threatened?
Fortunately Intel got more goods than they'd ever need on Rambus later during the Infineon litigation. I gather that it was Allen Roberts' home computer that had copies of quite a few of the materials that they thought were destroyed during the document destruction campaigns.

White knights? Wow, I'm still chuckling Dan. Do white knights engage in felony price fixing collusion with "competitors." Do white knights get squeal deals from the DOJ? Do white knights serve time for document destruction. Do white knights need to plead the 5th amendment?
