Well... they do have a right to protect their patents.

my comment was more tongue-in-cheek, but I agree with you Sygnus.

I just hear about these things in the news a lot and most are patent trolls. they buy a vague patent then sit on it for a long period of time and then sue anyone who is using it.

I don't think Rambus is doing that in this case.

My statement was in general, but yeah, if there's a way to make a dollar, well....

maybe I spoke to soon, but I guess it is up for interpretation on whether or not they are trollin: Rambus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

To me the problem is RAMBUS has a few patents that others tried to step on because they felt RAMBUS was too small to fight. RAMBUS said not so fast, we have a right to our patents just like Intel, Nvidia or any other large corporation.

Unfortunately, some of these corporations are finding out the hard way that RAMBUS isn't rolling over



That's the way I see it.

If RAMBUS has a patent then it should be honored and it looks like it's going to be. If patents aren't honored the companies will stop R and D because they will not receive the proper funds for there work and investment and we all as users will loose. If you build a better mouse trap then you should get the money. By the way most will want to buy the better mouse trap.
