Windows 7: F.T.C. Accuses Intel of Illegal Practices to Stifle Com

F.T.C. Accuses Intel of Illegal Practices to Stifle Com

The Federal Trade Commission on Wednesday sued the chipmaker Intel, accusing it of using its dominant market position to stifle competition and strengthen its monopoly.

The commission said Intel had waged a systematic campaign to shut out competing products by cutting off its rivals' access to the marketplace. In the process, it said, Intel deprived consumers of choice and innovation in the key component of personal computers.

Link doesn't work for "non members" of the NYT, or the article was moved.

Considering that it's been Intel that's been doing the innovating lately, I'm not sure how that complaint can hold water...

This has been in the works for quite some time - and I think it's quite deserved.

^ You can't innovate if your competitor is artificially and criminally stifling your business - you are left with no extra funds to sufficiently finance your R&D.

I hope AMD wins its lawsuit - it's the most injured party and they could use the money to get on par with Intel.

Intel has always been the leader in the Microprocessor Market.

A Monopoly, possibly, the giant, yes.

This is Capitalism thou, smear campaigns and everything goes right? Free Market?

AMD has the better processors - they don't copy off Intel, they made their own, and they take a far more elegant approach to the hardware than Intel does. (Can anyone say 'floating-point numbers'?) It's a shame that Intel has better marketing - 'cause if they didn't, they'd have a lot less of the processor market. So go AMD! Maybe you'll pull enough cash out of this to get a real marketing department, and then you can really break into the competition...
