A discussion of the patents can be found on

Case looks strong to me.
Aparently case looks stron to Toshiba as well.

Hitachi filed a countersuit in an attempt to draw everyone else into the lawsuit at once. THIS WAS DENIED! Hitachi's sole claims revolve around standards committee which RAMBUS left, and monopoly complaints.
GIVE ME A BREAK. Patents are to protect the little guy from the likes of thieves like Hitachi IMHO.

Hitachi is on their own. I bet SEGA (using Hitachi products) breaks first. Samsung will be first big one, but this will be carefully timed (no doubt after a selloff or after earnings which may be weak based upon RDRAM only).

Hitachi risks its entire memory line betting that Rambus would not bet their entire company on such a lawsuit. Well RAMBUS did bet the entire company. Based upon what you have seen, and a review of the patents above, WHO DO YOU BELIEVE?

Very long on the bus!
