Rambus Destroyed Documents, Patent Case Tossed
from the not-good dept
Rambus’ reputation keeps sinking lower and lower. Remember, this is the company that sat on a standard board for a while, pushing certain technologies to be included in the standard while simultaneously quietly filing for patents on the same technology, and then using those patents to threaten to sue just about everyone. In the latest patent infringement case from Rambus (against Infineon) the judge has decided to throw out the case, when it came out that Rambus had destroyed various documents in preparation for the case. Whatever happened to just competing in the market? Guess that’s just too complicated.
