South Korean investigation finds Intel violated antitrust laws

It wasn't all that long ago that the European Commission slapped Intel with some fairly significant antitrust charges, and it now looks like South Korea is set to do the same. According to Business Journal, after a two-year investigation, the country's Fair Trade Commission has concluded that Intel did in fact violate South Korea's antitrust laws, in particular by offering rebates to computer makers in order to sway them away from rivals like AMD. While there's no word on what penalties Intel might face just yet, Business Journal is reporting that sanctions should be decided by the FTC by October.
