Saw this item on the alternate news channel:
MAYNARD, Massachussetts, May 14 (Reuter) - Digital Equipment Corporation said Wednesday that it had filed a lawsuit against Cyrix Corp claiming that Cyrix had illegally copied Digital's plans for suing Intel in order to make up for having lost out to Intel in the market.
Robert Palmer, former British pop singer and now President of Digital, was quoted as saying, "We don't mind competing with other lawyers, but when those lawyers are imitating our style, well, that's just not fair."
Cyrix had no immediate comment, but analysts noted that Cyrix may agree to a settlement with Digital, unless the legal teams hired by each company can find some good ways to draw out the process for many years.
