Show me one example, just one. I know you can't, because that question has been ...
Here are a few examples:
Segway vs Ninebot; typical Chinese business model is to copy, make a bunch of money, then buys off Segway to make their legal problems go away.
A Chinese govt-affiliated company named Sinovel vs American Superconductor; American Superconductor agreed and offered to provide controls if Sinovel produced the towers. Then one day the turbines just kept spinning without any input from the American firm. Turns out they bribed an employee with $2 million to give them code.
An US federal jury ruled last year that Huawei had to pay $4.8 million in damages to T-Mobile. A Huawei engineer stole secret technology related to T-Mobile’s smartphone-testing robot while visiting the company’s headquarters. Huawei has a long track record in intellectual property theft. In 2004 Cisco Systems, the market leader in routers, took Huawei to court for stealing its core router software code and using it in Huawei routers. The case was settled confidentially.
On February 28, 2007, a Motorola engineer named Hanjuan Jin was stopped by customs agents at O’Hare Airport. They searched her and found she had $30,000 in cash, a carry-on bag full of Motorola documents marked “confidential and proprietary,” and a one-way ticket for Beijing. She was arrested.
A pair of U.S. engineers were convicted for selling DuPont’s secret chemical formula for making Oreo cookies to a state-owned Chinese company.
In 2015, the federal government charged six Chinese citizens with stealing wireless communications technology from two Silicon Valley microchip makers, Avago and Skyworks, and launching their own company to sell that technology in China. (Avago is now known as Broadcom.)
In August 2017, Taiwanese-American engineer Allen Ho was sentenced to two years in prison for providing nuclear energy technology information to China’s state-owned China General Nuclear Power Company (CGNPC).
In 2014, six Chinese nationals were arrested for attempting to steal genetically modified corn seeds from Dupont and Monsanto experimental farms in Iowa. The conspirators were employed by Chinese conglomerate DBN and its corn seed subsidiary, Kings Nower Seed. The Chinese government puts a high priority on agricultural development to feed its large and growing population.
According to a May 2017 Department of Justice press release, Chinese spy Xu Jiaqiang stole data storage technology from a US storage technology company for the benefit of China’s health system, the National Health and Family Planning Commission. Xu pleaded guilty to three counts of economic espionage and was sentenced to five years in prison.
