Intergraph Says Court Rules Against Intel in Patent Case
In 1997, Intergraph sued Intel for anticompetitive behavior, alleging that the chipmaker attempted to coerce Intergraph into giving up its patent rights to the Clipper microprocessor. Today's ruling stated that Intergraph received "the full and exclusive right, title and interest" to its Clipper patents.
"Based on this ruling, we can now pursue our case to receive a royalty for Intel's use of our technology in their Pentium products," Intergraph said. "The court's ruling clears the way for us to pursue recovering the value taken from our employees, customers and shareholders by Intel's actions."Representatives for Intel couldn't be reached for comment.
