RAMBUS was supposedly a licence to print money for the company Rambus Inc. that patented the design who then hung on to the design for dear life and charged heavy fees to use the design ie they got damned greedy at all the $ signs they could foresee there before them.
You'd have thought that somebody would have told them the story of VHS vs Betamax where a lesser format won simply cause it was given away for a small fee just to make it popular.
