Rambus Says It Disagrees with Federal Circuit Decision; Evaluating Options
Rambus Inc. (Nasdaq: RMBS), one of the world's premier technology licensing companies, today announced that the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (Federal Circuit) has issued its decision in Rambus's appeal of an ex parte reexamination of Rambus patent No. 6,034,918 (918).
Although the Federal Circuit has affirmed the United States Patent and Trademark Office's (PTO) rejection of claim 18, the decision does not affect the PTO's previous confirmation of the two other claims challenged in the reexamination. These two claims were asserted by Rambus and in a jury trial before Judge Whyte in the Northern District of California found to be infringed by SK Hynix. Claim 18 was not asserted in that patent trial.
