    Sounds a bit suspect to me hiring an antitrust expert. Surely his job will be to find loopholes to allow intel to keep pressuring customer to make things difficult for AMD? Wouldnt a better outcome of the recent court case be for Intel to play nice and stop illegally bribing people?!

    IBM used an antitrust team in the past as internal police. Their remit was to block any potential monopoly abuse within IBM regardless of cost.
    The problem with a big company is that senior managers may decide that the risk of being caught out in monopoly abuse is balanced against huge profits that can be made. Having internal Police reduces that.
