THIS TRIAL IS HEADED FOR A MISTRIAL!
Seems like everyone is arguing; including the Judge. If they are having problems, you know the jury will.
They are arguing, but most of these posts are missing the "KEY POINT".............. they are arguing about what goes in and from what starting point of time about "THE DAMAGES", NOT whether MU and/ or Hynix are "Guilty" or not. The Guilty seems to be the "Given here" and only trying to mitigate the damages by arguing points of LAW that address when, where, why, and how "Damages" are determined. If their main concern is amount of damages........ the Verdict "Guilty" seems to be a given here...... even by the defense attorneys.
A win for Rambus. The amount .... yet to be determined.
No one is "missing the point." Of course they are arguing damages. It's a protective strategy. You argue the case in 2 ways, one to win out right, the other, if out right win isn't possible, you try to get damages limited. This is just smart trail strategy. Nothing nefarious or telling about it.
Theft of [i.p.] must be stopped if you want companies to keep inventing better ways of doing the same old thing . in this case rmbs was stolen from and the cartel tried to destroy the company [rmbs] . this is a matter for anti- trust hence the [at] trial . hang on for a surprise opening one day soon !!! go rmbs longs !!!
No mistrial, just no damages to RMBS.
To much competition in the sector, MU didn't even manufacture the product. All the experts at the big companies said RMBS business plan and product was doom to fail.
Only one to blame for the failure is Rambus.
Another pipe dream of the lawyers and Rambuts. Another rambus failure.
There has still been no substancial evidence of price fixing to harm RMBS. To the contrary it was quite the opposite.
Look at DRAM today, selling for less than cost am many companies, is that also price fixing or just the competitive nature of the industry.
You are correct! I have a feeling that the jury instructions will be an item for appeal. I also believe that the jury will be so confused and conflicted that they will have no consensus and a mistrial.
