Rambus wants to collect licensing fees from cellphone makers


So apparently Rambus CEO Harold Huges said that just about every mobile phone on the market is infringing on his company's patents on memory interfaces, and simply put, he's planning on making them pay up and license the technology. According to IDG News Service, Rambus is currently talking to some 20 companies they say are infringing on their patents, with Hughes saying that litigation is only a last resort -- although the company has a long, sordid, notorious history of patent infringement suits against various technology companies, including a number of ongoing suits with semiconductor makers, and a recently settled case with Infineon Technologies. Hmm, go fig.
