FTC Force Rambus To License DRAM Chips

U.S. government regulators will require Rambus to license its DRAM chips to other vendors, and will cap the royalty fees Rambus can charge to both current and future DRAM manufacturers. The order “is designed to remedy the effects of the unlawful monopoly Rambus established in the markets for four computer memory technologies that have been incorporated into industry standards. In order to ensure that other equipment makers can freely use the technology, the FTC will also require Rambus to hire an FTC-approved compliance officer to ensure that Rambus is honest in revealing its patents to standard-setting bodies.
