UK court quashes VIA case against Intel
Some action at last in the long-festering dispute between Intel and VIA over rights to make chipsets for the Pentium 4. And in the UK, of all places. But it's not good news for the Taiwanese 'core logic' designer, which saw its antitrust case against Intel thrown out by the Chancery Division of the High Court in London. VIA had issued a writ claiming that a: it was entitled to make chipsets for P4s and b: Intel's denial of this right was an abuse of monopoly.
