@EREBUS, I totally agree with you. This move by europe will send wrong signal to the investors and they will think twice before investing in Europe. Just curious to know if Intel can approach an International court if it feels that the judgment is biased ?

Stealing money from the rich is still theft. Intel has always been an aggressive company. If the EU fined every company that made volume deals with production houses, the whole world would be guilty and no one would do business with Europe again. This is just politics being run through a court system. Its a populace approach to beat up on the big industry companies to take the focus off domestic issues.

Well if that is the way we can get access to the vast amounts of cash that big corporates are amassing, I am all for that :-)

buying vendors? If you mean discounting or giving marketing subsidies, it is a question of how that is done and whether it interferes with dompetition by damages the interests of consumers.

As I recall the saga: Intel was making parts. Doing well. Large customers - government types liked what they saw and were getting but was nervous on single source. Intel and AMD entered and Intel shared the design. AMD pulled some stunts and finally was expelled. Both were making parts. Then on more than one occasion, Intel's design started showing up at AMD. The last was most strange - not only sneaking out but then emailing the code to AMD from the INTEL design center in Silicon Valley. That one made the papers big time. AMD began to strike back by buying vendors in the US. INTEL simply did the same with several suppliers in Europe. The volume was coming out of the Bay area and Texas at the time. That is how my dusty brain recalls.
