I hadn't been following the Rambus patent lawsuits too closely, but Fortune has an article that really is fascinating. Rambus was not only greedy, but very sneaky and arrogant at the same time. They went to standards meetings, and basically took whatever people were talking about and amended various patent applications to include those things. They also lied about the patents they were working on, and tried to spin that by saying they never lied about patents that were issued. This isn't just a case of bogus patents - it's a case of intentionally modifying patents based on information from other companies, to try to gain reverse ownership of the entire industry.
