I was here in 1999 before it spiked in 2000, regret not booking my profits then. It was a very bumpy ride that required nerves of steel.
I BELIEVE the tide has finally turned in RMBS favour with latest judgement.
Look for such trickling news (like Fujitsu) now and then as most companies will line up and sign agreements over next 1- 2 years.
I have moved back in now again for long term, by increasing my holdings, as I see a ten begger over next 3-5 years, if company is not bought before. In case the company is bought for its portfolio of its patents, profit realization will be earlier, though less will materialize.
Don't ask me to justify my logic as the water has become so muddy that I think there is only mud and hardly any water left. Also I have lost track of what all patents are validated, and which ones invalidated, however its newer patents are free from any doubts and current memory is the one that will bring most money now. Even if the Royalties are lost for 90's and early 2000's its fine as it is a profitable company as of now. I used to follow till 2003 but after that I got bored and stopped following it.
I remember some very knowledgeable poster who tracked it all along, and reported court proceedings, I will like to catch up if some are still around.
I remember in 1999 when RDRAM sucked and didn't live up to the hype, and when the copyist engineers and spoliating management at Rambus decided to shred all evidence related to their misconduct at JEDEC, and especially all draft papers which proved they relied on prior art for their most profitable "inventions", oh the memories.
