Not an IP litigator but an intent to monopolize is unlawful under the Sherman Act. What is being alleged in this suit is that Rambus was attempting to intimidate the JeDec group through use of the power of its patents. It therefore was attempting to limit alternative technological developments and therefore monopolize the market.

So the counterclaim is not completely baseless, it may stand summary judgment. But to prove such a thing would be approaching incredible - but not impossible.
