Hans Smit - Stanley H. Fuld Professor of Law, and Director, Center for International Arbitration and Litigation Law, Columbia University. The author provided the text of this article to counsel in the Intel v. AMD case before they delivered their oral arguments before the Supreme Court. Regrettably, he did not manage to have it published before the Supreme Court rendered its decision. It is now published with a Postscript that identifies to what extent the Supreme Court has now definitely settled questions that Section 1782, despite its clear text, has raised.
