Intel responds to AMD antitrust complaint
A press release just hit my inbox about Intel's formal legal response to AMD's antitrust complaint. As one might expect, Intel takes issue with AMD's allegations, claiming that AMD has failed to gain market share due to its own mistakes. Furthermore, says Intel, AMD is actually seeking protection from competition:
AMD's complaint presents a case study in legal dissonance. Although AMD has purportedly brought its complaint to promote competition, its true aim is the opposite. Under the cover of competition law, AMD seeks to shield itself from competition. AMD seeks to impede Intel's ability to lower prices and thereby to allow AMD to charge higher prices. AMD's colorful language and fanciful claims cannot obscure AMD's goal of shielding AMD from price competition.
