Intel porn squatters stick up for AMD

Chipzilla and Chimpzilla meet their match in Gimpzilla

Intel today found itself pushing AMD products over the Internet. This was via the Web site intel-inside.com –- originally a hardcore porn site hiding behind the Intel name. Earlier this month Intel got the lawyers in to sort out the cyber-porn masquerading under its squeaky clean trade mark. The owners of the site then in turn masterminded a plan to bribe Intel into handing over loads of wonga to buy back the name. The registered owner of intel-inside.com, Thomas Puntman, put the domain name up for sale on EBay, asking a cool $400,000 for the URL. Intel's legal firm were no doubt working around the clock to crack this one. Today the intel-inside.com Web site was displaying the following message: "21 October '99: Ebay wrote today after 25 Bids up to $3000,- and 6 Days to go: Dear Intel-Inside, We regret to inform you that your auction: 182577329 Domain for sale www.intel-inside.com has been ended at the request of Intel, a member of eBay's Verified Rights Owner (VeRO) Program". Yet the cyber squatters managed to have a final pop at Intel. At the bottom of the Web page today was a link informing readers to Click Here for "The best processors". And what did the link lead to? AMD's Web site, of course. ® Related Stories Porno cyber squatters target Intel
