Rambus loses at BPAI

Reuters noted on 27 Jan 2012:

An appeals board at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office [BPAI] declared the patent invalid on January 24, according to a ruling posted on their website. The previous two were declared invalid in September.

The invalidation is more bad news for Rambus, whose stock shed 60 percent of its value in the weeks after a November 16 court decision in which it lost a $4 billion antitrust lawsuit against Micron Technology Inc and Hynix Semiconductor Inc

The Barth patents had been used to accuse a long list of tech companies of infringement, earning Rambus millions of dollars in licensing fees through settlements.
