This just in, Rambus sells
out to Acacia:
From the horse’s mouth:
“Acacia is delighted to be partnering with a technology innovation leader like Rambus,” commented Paul Ryan, chief executive officer at Acacia. “The addition of these assets to our portfolio allows us to grow our base of future revenues.”
And when translated:
“Acacia is delighted to have purchased a larger stick with which to beat companies and force a licensee fee for these patents,” commented Paul Ryan, chief troll officer at Acacia. “The addition of these assets to our portfolio allows us to shake down a broader range of companies so that we can keep our summer homes in Aspen.”
I am, of course, kidding. Everyone knows that trolls summer in the Caymans. Duh.
