This is from the BBC website:

European regulators have filed fresh charges against the world's biggest computer chip maker Intel over alleged abuse of its dominant market position.

The European Commission (EC) accused the firm of paying a leading European retailer not to stock products containing chips made by rival AMD.

It is also accused of giving incentives to PC makers to switch to Intel chips.

I don't see anything wrong with offering insentives, but I have to say, paying people not to stock AMD CPU's is dodgy as! And thats coming from an Intel fan!
