Between these lawsuits (which anyone working in the computer-building business will relate to) and the circumstances surrounding Intel's pullout from the OLPC project, it is VERY hard to stay unbiased.

Default Intels office's raided

EU regulator raids Intel offices:
"Intel, the world's biggest computer chipmaker, has been raided by European Union competition regulators amid claims it abused its market position."
BBC NEWS | Business | EU regulator raids Intel offices

They recently raided a group of pharmaceutical companies and collected evidence on price fixing drugs.

The EU now has the power to actually storm an office and seize records if they see fit.
