Updated Chip giant Intel appears to have taken fresh legal action against chipset and CPU manufacturer Via. The latest action, which was filed in the US on the 13th April, was filed against Via US and Via Taiwan, and scant details are at present available about the nature of the latest suit. According to a Via representative, the action is not a fresh legal move, but an attempt by Intel to gain extra time in its continuing tussle. Intel was unable to clarify the position. Ten days ago we reported that Via's acquisition of S3 would not give it a let out over existing litigation with Intel over alleged patent infringements. Meanwhile Intel has also filed a trademark action against a company called Intelia Inc in the USA. This one is a little easier to fathom out -- the similarity between the two names may be the key to understanding it. That action was also filed on the 13th of April When we discover more details about the latest Intel litigation, we will update this story. ®
