More on the Micron Suit

Lost Circuits has an article discussing the basis for Micron suing RAMBUS. Micron alleges that RAMBUS patented JEDEC (an electronics standard consortium) standards without disclosing said patents, a violation of JEDEC policy. They also allege that RAMBUS patented designs retroactively after they had been established as open standards. If this is all true, I hope Micron and Hyundai take them for all their worth. Thanks Ars Technica.

The Master comments: Personally, I hope they lose so much money over this fiasco that Intel has to buy them out and public-domain the patents just to calm the furor. Friggin' lawyers-they're trying really dang hard to stifle innovation in the marketplace. Must be greed talking.
