Chinese Industrial Espionage In America

Bloomberg provides a counterpoint to the industrial espionage charges brought against four Rio Tinto employees. It reports that

more than 50 people have been prosecuted in the U.S. since 2006 for allegedly transporting restricted technology, stealing trade secrets or conducting business espionage for China, according to the U.S. Justice Department.

Noting the relatively rarity of prosecutions being brought in China in connection with these sorts of cases, Bloomberg also says that, unlike the Rio Tinto case, many of the U.S. prosecutions involved military data. Both Chinese and U.S. citizens have been brought before the courts.
