Business Context:
AMD wants to sue Intel for anti-competitive behavior. AMD’s argument is that Intel has used its market leadership to exert unfair influence on customers to force AMD out of the market. Intel retorts that it is simply making better products.

Legal Context:

The Humor:
Uh oh — you’ve been redacted.

Indeed. That is clearly what the lawsuit is all about.
