The essential guide to IT transformation

One of the witnesses in the FTC case versus Intel, which was dropped yesterday, said it will carry on with its own anti-trust case against the chip giant. Intergraph said it hoped Intel would now change its behaviour to give "fair and equal treatment" to its partners and said it also hoped that the chip giant will now behave fairly in business. But just because the FTC and Intel have reached an agreement, that will not stop Intergraph pursuing its own case, the company said. "We will continue to pursue our private lawsuit against Intel, which is a much broader case and includes antitrust violations, patent infringement, and illegal coercive behaviour," said a statement. "While we have not seen the precise relief the FTC obtained in the decree, this settlement vindicates our antitrust claims and shows that the preliminary injunction in favor of Intergraph granted by Judge Nelson in the federal court of Alabama was based on sound antitrust principles," it continued. FTC officials have indicated that they are still investigating a broader case against Chipzilla. ® Analysis: Intel sidesteps FTC case Intel-FTC deal leaves Intergraph to square -- $$$ needed?
