  • US chipmaker Intel's decade-long fight against a EUR 1.06 billion ($1.3 billion or roughly Rs. 6,796 crores) EU antitrust fine is set to drag on after Europe's top judges told a lower court to re-examine the case.In what could be seen as an encouraging sign for the company, the judges said the lower court, known as the General Court, should focus on Intel's arguments that its rebates to customers were not anti-competitive.The ruling by the Court of Justice of the EU (ECJ) may force the European Commission to re-examine its tough line and economic approach in other antitrust cases such as against Qualcomm and Alphabet unit Google.The General Court in its 2014 ruling upheld the European Commission's 2009 decision but last year an court adviser recommended backing Intel's arguments."The Court of Justice sets aside the judgment of the General Court, which had upheld the fine of 1.06 billion euros imposed on Intel by the Commission for abuse of a dominant positi..

  • BRAZIL: Clean File Act Can Be Applied In Cases Before 2010, Court Rules Brazil's Federal Supreme Court (STF) had ruled, in a 6-5 vote, that the Clean File Act can be enforced against politicians convicted in the second instance before 2010, when the legislation came into force. In those cases, however, the ineligibility period was increased to eight years, and no more three years as it was before. As a result, they are unable to run for public office in next year's elections. Five Justices voted against the retroactive application of the legislation: Gilmar Mendes, Ricardo Lewandowski, Marco Aur?lio Mello, Celso de Mello, and Alexandre de Moraes. To them, to apply the act retroactively should not be allowed. However, six Justices voted for act's retroactive enforcement: Luiz Fux, Lu?s Roberto Barroso, Edson Fachin, Rosa Weber, Dias Toffoli, and the STF's chairwoman, Carmen L?cia, who gave the tiebreaker vote. The Supreme Court must resume the debate on ca..

  • A US court has allowed the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to keep secret the information regarding the tool that was used to hack iPhone 5c used by terrorist Syed Farook who killed 14 people in San Bernardino, California, in December 2015.According to technology website ZDNet, some leading media houses filed a Freedom of Information lawsuit to reveal the name of the hacking tool's vendor and its price.The court, in its final ruling on Sunday, said the FBI would not be forced to reveal details of a hacking tool used to break into a terrorist's iPhone.In her ruling, federal judge Tanya Chutkan said naming the vendor and its cost would amount to putting a target on its back, and could lead to the loss of theft of the hacking tool."It is logical and plausible that the vendor may be less capable than the FBI of protecting its proprietary information in the face of a cyber-attack," said the court.The FBI noted that the vendor's networks are "not as sophisticated" a..
