Intel and Broadcom best friends again

Sad day for lawyers

Intel and Broadcom are reported to have kissed and made up, and settled all claims and counter-claims against each other.

A brief joint statement was distributed earlier today saying:

"Intel Corporation and Broadcom Corporation today announced they have settled all claims against each other brought under Intel's trade secret lawsuit against Broadcom, filed in California Superior Court in March 2000, and under Broadcom's trade secret cross-complaint against Intel, filed in June 2000. Both companies expressed satisfaction with the terms of the settlement agreement, which are confidential."

Neither company was available for further comment. ®
