AMD Recently, AMD spun off its manufacturing business in a partnership with the Abu Dhabi government into Global Foundries. Apparently, Intel isn't very happy about this, and has said in correspondence to AMD that the patent cross-license agreement from 2001 has now been broken by AMD.

My understanding is that Intel 64 *IS* AMD64, and Intel licensed AMD's 64-bit extensions via the cross-licensing agreement. My source on this is Wikipedia, which points out they're not completely identical, and doesn't say who VIA licensed their x86-64 implementation from (the VIA Nano is 64-bit)
