Intel talking to FTC about settling antitrust case
SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Intel says it is in talks with the Federal Trade Commission over settling an antitrust case against the chip maker.
In December, the FTC filed charges against Intel Corp., accusing it of practicing illegal sales tactics that have hampered competitors and kept prices for computer chips artificially high.
This week, the FTC and Intel agreed to suspend administrative trial proceedings as they work on hashing out a settlement.
The FTC has said it seeks to change Intel’s behavior instead of fines, as the European Union and South Korea have imposed.
The New York Attorney General’s office is also investigating Intel.
