Subject: Intel Readies For Via Lawsuit
This C|Net story goes into a little detail about the whole Intel strategy to "fan out" in it's legal fight with VIA. Snip:
?Intel invests billions of dollars each year in research and development to create new, patented inventions that bring significant value to our customers," Peter Detkin, Intel vice president and assistant general counsel, said in a statement. "Those inventions and the underlying intellectual property are the cornerstone of our business and significant assets. Like any other valuable asset, Intel has an obligation to its shareholders to protect the value of its intellectual property."Interestingly enough, that sounds like the same speech Rambus Inc. gave when it went to sue other memory manufacturers for infringing on their technology.
