Ferree Statement on FTC Action against Intel

WASHINGTON D.C. - Today, the Federal Trade Commission brought an administrative complaint against Intel accusing the company of anticompetitive practices.  The following statement can be attributed to Ken Ferree, Senior Fellow at The Progress & Freedom Foundation:

I really expected much better of this administration.  No serious antitrust theory supports the FTC's action, which appears to take Intel to task for competing ferociously in a market that is ferociously competitive.  If this ever ends up before a federal court, I'm sure the FTC's efforts will be exposed for what they are - an attempt to make headlines rather than good law.
