Hyundai dances the lobster quadrille

Just one clear day after Micron (the MuHeads) took antitrust action against Rambus, Hyundai (a Dramurai) threw its weight against the Mountain View intellectual property engine and is taking legal action against the company.

The new twist in the continuing saga, reported by Electronic News, means that the kevlar-plated Ramboosters are now facing squadrons of quill-equipped space lawyers from Infineon, Hyundai and Micron.

Yesterday, the Ramboosters duly and belatedly danced its part in the memory gavotte, stating that it would "vigorously defend" its intellectual property.

The argy-bargy centres around who owns the patents on synchronous and DDR memory, but, under the surface, memory giants are nurturing seething resentments at the thought of having to pay royalties to Rambus for anything.

The story so far. Scientists on the planet Ramboost developed a new technology and with aid of the Evil Intel Empire prepared to invade PCs everywhere and insert reams of RIMMs into citizens' motherboards.

Brave Dramurai from the planet Hitachi attempted to beat the Ramboosters but were forced to surrender. The Ramboosters then struck at Planet Infineon, aided and abetted by renegade Dramurai from Toshiba bis and Oki Pinoki. MuHeads from the planet Boise struck back and then [that's enough Eagle comic stuff - Ed]. ®
