Hitachi brokeoff negotiation: You can draw the same kind of conclusions. That hitachi's lawyers dont think they (rambus) have a case on their industry standard patents. Now which lawyers are more accurate? The jury is still out. if Hitachi wins, then Toshiba's legal/management team will look rather bad. If Hitachi lose, or settle, then toshiba's team look good.

I believe you have your answer to this now. :) Toshiba knew what they were doing when they settled. I'm surprised how quickly Hitachi threw in the towel, as they were the squeakiest of wheels. This says something for the strength of Rambus IP.
