And we should start with AMD:

Chinese-designed "Dhyana" x86 processors based on AMD's Zen microarchitecture are beginning to surface from Chinese chip producer Hygon. The processors come as the fruit of AMD's x86 IP licensing agreements with its China-based partners and break the decades-long stranglehold on x86 held by the triumvirate of Intel, AMD and VIA Technologies. Details are also emerging that outline how AMD has managed to stay within the boundaries of the x86 licensing agreements but still allow Chinese-controlled interests to design and sell processors based on the Zen design.

The cat's out of the bag now.  The structure of this "deal" is legally dubious at best, and it's guaranteed to buttrape Intel eventually.  This is exactly the sort of horse**** that the Chinese pull all the time, multi-level structures that look ok on the front end but result in a 100% technology transfer and then the Chinese stealing said technology wholesale, screwing the owners who aren't Chinese.

This isn't one company that does this every now and again, it is a formal policy of the Chinese government.

We need a 100% trade embargo with these **********s and we need it now.

If this crap is not stopped and everything stolen returned -- 100% of it, either in economic value or physically -- then a complete embargo of anything produced in China will be the only way American technology firms survive.
