Intellectual property firm Rambus continues to pile the pressure on errant Dramurai who refuse to play its patent game.

The firm has launched fresh legal action against Infineon in a Mannheim court, asking the court to issue an injunction preventing it from infringing patents it says it owns on synchronous memory and double data rate (DDR) memory.

A previous law suit against Infineon was filed in August, as we reported here.

The news will come as a relief to lawyers in Europe. In the last week, Rambus took action against Hyundai and Micron in the fuel-blighted continent. Hopefully, Rambus will not forget lawyers in Asia too, who could also do with the extra dosh.

The Mannheim case is slated for hearing on the 22nd of December. And a Merry Yule to lawyers everywhere.

Probably time to do a fresh roundup on the Rambus Affair again. We'll attempt one over the weekend. The Rambus share price (RMBS) has been performing well on all of this news, leaping over $7 yesterday. Currently it stands at $85.0625. Micron's share price has recently exhibited RMBS characteristics, and currently is dropping, standing at $64.93. The Infineon share price also has brewer's droop at just over $54. ®
