AMD Accuses Former Employees of Revealing Secrets to Nvidia.
When you download documents on corporate networks everything is logged. Unusual download activity months after you put down your resignations and even right upto the date you put down the resignations will be meticulously monitored. Its pretty obvious if your file traffic goes up just before you resign and right after it when you serve your notice periods.
These things are not taken lightly, whether they shared it with anyone in Nvidia or they are guilty of taking it to Nvidia will be handled by the courts based on logs and other technically verified evidence admissible in a court of law.
BUT, what they do require are non-disclosure agreements as well as ownership of all intellectual property created by it's employees during their employment and for a finite period of time after leaving.
These ex-AMD employees should be taken to task for what they have done. They surely would not have done this while working for AMD since they know it would not benefit AMD or their job security.
Take them to court, and require the return of all information.
Then take Nvidia to the SEC and scour their files.
What do you think will happen the day that they'll find another opportunity?
Did Nvidia offer them a position expecting such actions? Being a fan of their product I honestly hope it's not the case.
