Japan's anti-monopoly watchdog issued a warning to U.S. chipmaker Intel Corp. on Tuesday, demanding that the company stop curbing competition in the microprocessor chip market by pressuring Japanese clients to buy its chips. Japan's Fair Trade Commission didn't impose any fines on Intel, but said the U.S. company could face prosecution if it doesn't change its ways. Intel was given 10 days to respond.
