Chinese engineers struggle for a life in shenzhen. Can't buy a small room in shenzhen working for a life. The government don't do something about price reduction of real state rather than send three engineers to jail.

The punishment would be meaningless if they are treated royally in jail with generous visitation rights etc. We don't know what may be happening behind the scenes.

It's not just "siting" but "seems to lenient" too. A sad reflection on American "inginears". We can't complain about management not listening to us if we can't look informed when writing to them. Writing well means never having to say, 'I guess you had to be there.' --Jef Mallett, Frazz, 07-29-07

How about "citing" examples of sentence you think are satisfactory, instead?

How about siting examples of sentences you think are satisfactory? For instance, in my post I reference a searchable case in the US that I believe points out that the sentence is not unusual. I'll provide a direct link here to make things easier... and I'll try and keep my link from being a self-promotion. http://www.durabilityanddesign.com/news/?fuseaction=view&id=4761

This light sentencing was a farce. White collar crime in China pays quite well and this type of legal precedent will continue to encourage Chinese workers to illegally sell IP to the highest bidder with little downside.

The sentenced seems to lenient. It should be longer. Thieves like them should have been taught their lessons. http://www.squidoo.com/los-angeles-iphone-developers

China moving forward. This is commendable. Unfortunately, they will be out in few days.
