I couldn't agree more. Anyone who makes a profit is suspect to the SEC. Our taxes in action. Martha Stewart's( insider trader ) back on TV and more popular than ever. Double standard on useless issues.

@Charles.Desassure: good call, the media has to be fair in saying that these are alleged leak of insider information. Though the text of the article does mention "alleged" the caption doesn't! Many of us have consulted with market research firms and most times I have provided what I thought of XYZ company's new product as an outsider. Investment advising companies have a need to consult some one who can explain to them in plain English what a hitech product does. MP Divakar

The firm that pays your bread and butter today will throw you out into the street tomorrow if it improves their bottom line in the next quarter. Loyalty to the firm ended when this practice began.

"in an **alleged** insider trading scheme." Nothing *alleged* about the charge. Insider trading was what they were charged with. Don't be so mealy-mouthed. If you want to cover your ****'s while talking about individuals you can say "alleged insider-trader joe blow was indicted today."

It all end up in consumer market. As long as people are there to buy cheaper products even if they are not original, there is need which is fulfilled by these people. It again starts from big corporate which sell their products at heavy profit margins in market, the wider the gap is more is the demand for cheating.

I find the equation with Wikileaks a little odd. I think the motive was not justified. But, then that might be subject of a whole debate in itself!

i know Charles that most of these things are well known secrets and still such practices are hush hush. But atleast we can criticize anyone who is involved in such practice.

Surprise! Surprise! Surprise! Really…I don’t think anyone is surprise about this. This type of crime has been going on since the 1960’s. With advancement in technology and improved educational training relating to internal information security; the government can better recognize an alleged insider trading scheme. But I want to be fair to say that this is an alleged event.

These "expert networks" are walking a fine line between legitimate consulting and criminal behavior. I have been approached by several of these companies. Although the sign-up agreement has a clause regarding proprietary or insider information, I still felt that some of the "market research" requested would cross an ethical line, so I declined to participate.

Another illustration of the complexity of maintaining corporate and governemnt security. Just as the number of late night pizza boxes entering government offices in Washington DC may be indicative of forthcoming political developments, factory floor workers may have important competitive information readily available at their fingertips. Espionage doesn't always require high technology.
