The complex deal brokered between Via and S3 is unlikely to put an end to the legal wrangling kicked off by chip giant Intel last year. Sources close to S3 told The Register today that despite the extensive cross-licensing deals that exist between it an Intel, Via will not get respite despite its acquisition of the firm. The source said that the cross-licensing deals between S3 and Intel, which came about as a result of some wise buying of Exponential patents, were not part of the territory that Via has bought. While that will offer some relief to Intel, it means that we are set for a long hard battle through multiple courts across the world, delighting m'learned friends but probably leaving the rest of us bitter and twisted. ® Related Stories Via reckons it will triple revenues this year Via buys S3 chip biz for $323m-plus Intel: S3 had us by the goolies
