Intel Sues Rival Over Copyright Infringement: Intel Corp. has filed a new lawsuit against competitor Advanced Micro Devices Inc., claiming that AMD infringed on Intel's copyright for the 486 microprocessor. According to a press release from Intel, the company has also asked a San Jose U.S. District Court judge to reconsider his April 15 decision throwing out a jury verdict against AMD in a related Intel lawsuit. That ruling allowed AMD to begin shipping its clone of Intel's 486 microprocessor as of April 19. The new lawsuit, also filed in federal court in San Jose, is similar to earlier ones in that Intel is alleging that AMD infringed on Intel's copyrights for the computer chip micro-code.
