Hongjin Tan, a 35 year old Chinese national and U.S. legal permanent resident, was arrested on Dec. 20 and charged with theft of trade secrets. Tan is alleged to have stolen the trade secrets from his employer, a U.S. petroleum company.

The announcement was made by Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers, U.S. Attorney Trent Shores for the Northern District of Oklahoma, and Special Agent in Charge Kathryn Peterson of the FBI Oklahoma City Field Office.


“The United States filed a criminal complaint against a Chinese national alleging the theft of intellectual property from a company with significant operations in Oklahoma,” said U.S. Attorney Shores. “The value of the trade secrets in this case is estimated to be more than $1 billion dollars. Theft of critical research, development, and other intellectual property harms the economic prosperity and security of the United States. My office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation will utilize all tools available to respond to these types of threats. We will protect Oklahomans and Oklahoma businesses by prosecuting those who violate the law.”


Hongjin Tan allegedly stole trade secrets related to a product worth more than $1 billion from his U.S.-based petroleum company employer, to use for the benefit of a Chinese company where he was offered employment, said Assistant Attorney General Demers. "The theft of intellectual property harms American companies and American workers. As our recent cases show, all too often these thefts involve the Chinese government or Chinese companies. The Department recently launched an initiative to protect our economy from such illegal practices emanating from China, and we continue to make this a top priority."

What??? No comments from the peanut gallery about how the Chinese would never do this? Only "Amerikans" and "The West" steal secrets? Too easy eating crow to comment?
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words

When EU charged US for espionage, EU could do nothing about it!
US power dominates the entire world!
China does not believe and thinks that Chinese are above law, just like they are at home!

I can not judge if your report is true or not due to lack of enough information! The case shows that is difficult for us to easily keep secrets as before in the Internet world!
The other day one foreign friend invited me to have a chat with him through QQ.  I hesitated to accept his invitation in afraid of leaking some secrets!
All of our writings should go with zero error!

      Problem is that most people outside the 5 eye organization don't believe any more whatever their media is spewing out.
Regarding, the Chinese national and U.S. legal permanent residents; we thank him for making Chinese aware that the US is not a place for them.  Do not go there, or get the hell out of there before you're the next victim...

I don't know what that has to do with this thread, but if we go that way, then a bigger problem is that in China most people still have no other choice than to believe whatever their media is spewing out.

Elsewhere, there is always a choice between various media, or even no media at all. In China, even that last choice is not really available.
