AMD V. Intel

Video Game Law Blog

July 03, 2005

Chip-maker AMD recently filed an antitrust lawsuit against Intel in the US District Court in Delaware. AMD claims that Intel threatened AMD's customers and used other unfair tactics in an attempt to secure a monopoly. AMD has pointed to a recent report from Japan's Fair Trade Commission which found that Intel had given rebates to five PC manufacturers in exchange for their promise to restrict or stop their use of AMD chips. 

The case probably won't make it into court for another year or two. In the meantime, 'the men and women of AMD will continue to drive innovation"? (according to AMD's CEO) and 'the men and women of Davis& Company's Video Game Law Group will continue to driveGTR" (according to us–watch for our press release).
