SANS - Survey on application security programs

A long-running case Intergraph has waged against chip giant Intel suffered a further blow Friday last when a US court of appeal said the chip giant is not violating anti-trust legislation. The ruling, reported on news.com, said that Intergraph's argument that Intel had cut off technological information and stopped supply of CPUs did not, in itself, breach US anti-trust legislation. While the appeals court, in its ruling, acknowledged that Intel had behaved harshly against Intergraph, this could not be construed as a violation of the Sherman Act. It suspended an injunction in a lower, district court, and sent a clear signal that it believed Intel did not behave in a monopolistic manner. While Intergraph can appeal this decision in a higher US court, there is some doubt about whether it will do so. The long-standing action has already drained Intergraph of funds and energy. Last month, another US court rejected an Intergraph claim that Intel had breached its patents. ®
