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.

The problem with cases like this and the Microsoft anti-trust proceedings is that slapping them with a hugenormous fine and saying "stop that" does little to correct the underlying issues in the industry that allowed the situation to exist in the first place.
