Originally trying to keep the issues within the U.S., Intel has lost a bit of ground to AMD in the anti-trust case against them. They have conceded to allowing information and acts outside the U.S. to be brought into the case. They are doing this semi-voluntarily, acting on the recommendation from others:
Concurring with AMD's request, a judicially appointed special master overseeing elements of the case had recommended on December 15 that Intel share information from foreign operations in the evidence-gathering process called discovery. On Thursday, Intel said it wouldn't fight that recommendation.
AMD obviously believes the information will have impact on the outcome of the case, especially since Intel didn't want to do this at first. Intel still plans to rebuke the ability of AMD to use the information, so who knows what impact this will really have. This case will likely be going on for a long, long time yet.
