FTC Grants a Partial Stay to Rambus
Anonymous Reader writes "The world of open source has its SCO suit, and the world of open standards has its Rambus mess. Rambus is a memory technology developer that the Federal Trade Commission has ruled created an illegal monopoly by "gaming" the standard setting process. Last Friday, Rambus won a tactical victory that will allow it to continue to charge its current royalties, so long as the part the FTC deems to be excessive goes into an escrow account, until an appeal by Rambus' is won or lost."
