Fresh off a major courtroom victory over Hynix Semiconductor and other manufacturers, Rambus says it's considering seeking an injunction against Hynix to keep it from making memory chips that infringe on its patents.

The specter also brings to the fore the debate over whether patent holders should be allowed to get an injunction over patents that are used in industry standards, like those at issue here.
