    So, did AMD effectively allege that because Intel was the first to try and stop AMD*, AMD now has the right (in law) to stop Intel*, whereas AMD may continue*?
    *"using rights conferred under the joint license"

    Have I got that right?

    Whoever wrote up that contract put a "bomb clause" in. (Don't Google that: I just made it up...) Before the bomb can be chucked, it detects movement and explodes, killing the person chucking.

    That's so clever!

    It's quite simple, if Intel wants to terminate the cross licensing agreement, then it is obvious that any rights to AMD's tech Intel had under the agreement are also terminated..

    It might seem simple to you but your statement there is wrong.
    There is a bad faith clause in the agreement that means that any abuse of the agreement by one party means they lose their rights in the agreement but the other party does not.

    Badass, well explained!

    Intel should be contacting you shortly - they want more down-to-earth people on their legal team.
