The Korean Fair Trade Commission conducts dawn raids on Intel offices in Korea

In another twist to AMD's ongoing antitrust case against Intel, the KFTC (Korean Fair Trade Commission) completed a dawn raid on Intel's Korean offices. This latest raid was conducted to investigate Intel's relationship with four South Korean PC vendors. AMD claims that Intel's predatory business dealings have victimized 38 companies around the world.

Intel was found guilty of monopolistic business practices by a Japanese court ruling in March of 2005. In July of 2005, Intel offices and the offices of major European PC vendors were raided by the European Commission to gather information in the ongoing antitrust case. The company then lost another court battle on December 15th, 2005 after the Tokoyo District Court ruled that documents implicating Intel in improper business practices had to be turned over to the Japanese Fair Trade Commission and AMD.

executive vice president, Thomas M. McCoy, wasted no time expressing his thoughts on this latest inquiry into Intel's business practices: "Similar dawn raids conducted by competition authorities in Japan revealed evidence of illegal business practices that violated that country's Antimonopoly Act. The JFTC ruled that Intel conditioned deals with Japanese PC OEMs based on excluding competition. Last year, the European Commission also conducted dawn raids across Europe to gather evidence of Intel monopoly abuse within the European Union. How many raids in how many countries need to happen before Intel accepts responsibility for its anticompetitive actions and ceases its unlawful business practices?"

For those of you have haven't read AMD's full briefing on its case against Intel, be sure to download it here. It's quite a whopper weighing in at at a 48 pages.

"We are going to continue to work with them to make sure they understand the reality of the Internet.  A lot of these people don't have Ph.Ds, and they don't have a degree in computer science." -- RIM co-CEO Michael Lazaridis
