6 Chinese Charged with Industrial Espionage

May 19, 2015 - 7:22 pm

USA Today has run a news article today about the 6 Chinese charged with industrial espionage.   This problem dates back to at least the mid-eighties and was the focus of the Minstrel’s Alley book by Gordon Basichis, The Guys Who Spied for China.”  Basichis’ book is a roman a clef  that chronicles technology espionage by a web of disaffected Americans  working as Chinese moles.

Here is a link to the USA Today article:  

WASHINGTON –Two Chinese professors are among six Chinese nationals accused by federal prosecutors of economic espionage sponsored by their home government in the alleged theft of sensitive radio frequency filter technology developed by two U.S. companies.

The professors, who attended the University of Southern California, allegedly obtained the trade secret information– designed in part to limit interference in mobile phone reception and other devices– as part of a “long-running effort” to benefit universities and companies controlled by the Chinese government.  http://usat.ly/1HevN2K
