The article focuses on allegations that have been made by Intel Corp. and Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) against each other for violating a 2001 patent cross-license agreement. Intel believes that AMD breached the agreement when it spun off its manufacturing unit to create GlobalFoundries. According to a statement released by Intel's officials, GlobalFoundries is not a subsidiary under terms of the agreement and is therefore not licensed under the 2001 patent cross-license agreement.
