AMD filed a complaint yesterday alleging that four of its former employees—one former vice-president and three former managers—transferred sensitive AMD documents before joining competing graphics chip maker NVIDIA and then violated a “no-solicitation of employees” promise. The company alleges that Robert Feldstein, Manoo Desai, Nicolas Kociuk collectively downloaded over 100,000 files onto external hard drives in the six months before leaving the company. All three and another manager, Richard Hagen, were accused of recruiting AMD employees after leaving for NVIDIA.

Intel employee got 3 years when he left Intel for AMD.
AMD didnt use the docs, and help report it.
If nVidia did the same, theyre off the hook.
As for the 4 guys, looks like a long jail term

Most companies wont risk their entire livelyhood just for someone elses IP, tho some foreign companies come to mind of doing so in the past.
Im sure nVidia didnt use any IP from this, and if presented, also did the reporting
