Taiwanese firm First International Computer (FIC) has released a statement responding to Intel's legal action against the firm. And the firm is figuratively waving two fingers at Chipzilla, saying that it will carry on making motherboards using Via chipsets. FIC said that it would respect any court decisions, but is surprised that it has received a summons from lawyers at the Santa Clara firm for the use of Via chipsets. The case between Via and Intel has yet to be settled, the statement points out, and FIC will continue to manufacture motherboards and otherboards that use the chipset. The statement adds that FIC and Via are two independent companies, neither financially or technically related. It says that this year it will selll six million motherboards to PC manufacturers and others, and supplies Via chipsets because the market demands them. FIC sees the action by Intel as an "isolated incident", and hopes there will be no change in the working relationship it has with Chipzilla. This, of course, is a faint hope. When your erstwhile friend issues a legal challenge to you, it somewhat damages the relationship in the world of human beings. The lawsuit will not affect product deliveries, FIC stressed. The patent violations it is accused of cannot be divulged at present, says FIC. It will respond to Intel's allegations within 20 days. ® See also Intel Santa Clarifies Via legal pursuit More Taiwanese mobo makers get jitters after Intel suit
