In the past, when China was a backwater of technology, stealing technology from us just kept them minimally in the game. Now that they are ready to leap frog us technically, this should be treated as an act of aggression. When will the WalMart Lobby in Washington allow the US to get serious with China about stealing intellectual property? The real traitors in this are the congressmen and lobbyists that prevent real action against China for their total disregard of international IP law. This has been going on for years and congress does nothing.

This bothers me, but what bothers me even more is when foreign companies purchase US companies and therefore inherit technology whose development was originally and substantially supported by our tax dollars (incl. NASA and DoD), not to mention its effects on nat'l security and long-term global competitiveness. I am concerned that there is a lack of attention to this and other such notions when approval is sought for such profound acquisitions.

Since increasingly the only thing the West has to offer is IP, its not looking good.

I have been looking at these sites-FBI, DOJ, SEC, etc.-more often than I did in the past. Why? These insider trading events really bother me. So does IP theft. Does it bother anyone else or just me?

yes, all accused of IP theft are guilty until proven innocent. except for Americans (1800-1940's) who only borrowed from Europe with full intention to repay later.

Many journalists have noticed that obtaining information from companies has become extremely hard to get. The industry is well aware that IP theft is an accepted form of business in Asia. Mark is providing news on those cases that come to light. A vast number do not. And I agree, with Selinz, bury him under the court house...,

Does the increase in "insider trading" and "corporate espionage" articles indicate a trend - or does it simply reflect Mark LaPedus' area of interest as a writer? Certainly these things have been happening for years.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
