US regulators have run out of higher courts to appeal their long-standing case that memory maker Rambus tricked industry groups into an anticompetitive "patent ambush." The Supreme Court rejected the US Federal Trade Commission's request to resurrect antitrust accusations the District of Columbia Circuit tossed out in April. …
The irony is it was the government that gave Rambus a legal monopoly by granting them patent rights for an enormous list of revolutionary patents. Then the FTC sues them for having a monopoly on the market.
It is only a matter of time before Rambus wins the rest of their court battles. The previous claims that Rambus committed spoliation are so ridiculous as to suspect the judge was either incredibly incompetent or potentially bribed.
