Intel, Rambus beefing up legal departments

Tooling up in readiness?

Intel is advertising for more lawyers to work on intellectual property and patents. The list of vacancies at the chip behemoth at HotJobs includes vacancies for an additional four attorneys.

Meanwhile, Rambus is also looking to hire another patent attorney here, whose job description includes the phrase "You will also perform licensing activities such as developing infringement positions and presentations".

Now why on Earth would Intel and Rambus both be keen to add more heavyweight legal eagles? Could it be mere coincidence? ®
