AMD wants to make cross-license deal public

Posted on Tuesday, March 17 2009 @ 16:40:51 CET by


Intel notified AMD yesterday that they believe that the Globalfoundries deal violates a x86 cross-license patent agreement, which was countered by a statement from AMD that they believe that they didn't breach the deal because Globalfoundries is an AMD subsidiary. AMD added today that they're willing to make the entire agreement with Intel public, if Intel drops a demand to keep evidence submitted in its US antitrust suit confidential. This antitrust suit was filed by AMD in 2005.
Trying to determine whether or not these claims have merit is more difficult for industry observers because the full terms of the cross-license are confidential. An Intel spokesman said the chip maker was willing to make the agreement made public, but said AMD prevented this from happening,

"We are willing to make the entire agreement public. We've told AMD we would be fine with making the entire agreement public," said Chuck Mulloy, an Intel spokesman. "AMD has declined to do so."

In response, AMD said it was willing to make the agreement public provided Intel lifted demands for confidentiality in the antitrust suit.
