Rambus has had a ton of up and downs with its strategy of gathering patents, making sure industry chip standards are built around its patents and then demanding everyone pay up huge fees. There's been a back and forth over the questions concerning its questionable activities, but it had actually won the last few rounds. But, you can't keep reality down too long. Yet another judge has smacked down Rambus calling the company's actions "obstructive at best, misleading at worst," and saying that its patents were unenforceable. Rambus, of course, will appeal, so this is far from over.
