Intel up against years of antitrust actions

It appears that Intel (INTC) may be hit with huge antitrust fines by the European Union. An investigation into the practices of the world's largest chip company has been going on for years.

The allegation is that the company used its muscle and undue influence on PC and server companies to keep market share. Predatory pricing and special financial offers to customers may also have been a part of the behavior that could bring on sanctions against the company.
