Intel As was already revealed by eWeek earlier this week, the EU has imposed a massive fine on Intel for abusing its monopoly position. The fine is larger than the one given to Microsoft: 1.06 billion EUR, or 1.44 billion USD, opposed to the 899 million EUR fine imposed upon Microsoft.

How is fining a company going to help another company?


How is not fining a monopoly for using its position to keep competition out of a market ever going to stop them from continuing to do so?
