Korean Fair Trade Commission v. Intel

Janusz Ordover supported by University of Rochester Professor Greg Shaffer, prepared a written statement and presented economic analysis on behalf of Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) to the Korean Fair Trade Commission (KFTC) in its case against Intel. Compass Lexecon was able to demonstrate that Intel’s conduct, as alleged by the KFTC, had an exclusionary effect on AMD by foreclosing its microprocessors from certain leading Korean original equipment manufacturers, and also harmed Korean consumers. In June 2008, the KFTC fined Intel $25.4 million. AMD is represented by Youngjin Jung of Yulchon Attorneys at Law in Seoul, Korea.
