Seoul, Korea, March 29, 2003

hynix Semiconductor announced today that the German Patent Office cancelled Rambus’ German utility model corresponding to its European Patent No. 0 525 068.

The German Patent Office ruled that Rambus violated German patent law by improperly trying to extend the scope of protection of the utility model. Rambus had sued hynix for infringing the utility model in Mannheim, Germany. Rambus’ efforts to add auxiliary requests, which amount to amended claims, to its utility model were also rejected.
