Standards bodies file brief in Rambus case

A group of standard-setting bodies has weighed in on the patent-infringement case filed by memory designer Rambus against German memory maker Infineon. The major standard-setting bodies are parties to a friend-of-the-court brief filed in the U.S. Supreme Court by Lucash, Gesmer & Updegrove, according to the Boston-based law firm.

The brief argues that Rambus should not be allowed to prevail in its case, because the company allegedly concealed intellectual property from a standards group called Joint Electron Devices Engineering Council (JEDEC) when the group's bylaws demanded disclosure. This led to a trial court declaring last year that Rambus could not bring patent-infringement claims against Infineon and that Rambus committed fraud. An appeals court essentially reversed that trial court ruling, noting that a number of companies didn't follow the group's bylaws. Another trial between Rambus and Infineon is pending.
