Play • 54 min

Ex FBI Case Agent Josh Mayers relays the story of a notorious trade secret theft case. The case took 7 years from discovery to conviction and spanned 3 continents. This theft was carried out by an insider, an employee acquired through a corporate acquisition, who was lured into stealing valuable software. The theft caused the company who owned those rights legitimately to lose billions of dollars and hundreds of jobs. This was the first time a Chinese corporation was convicted of a crime in the U.S. Courts. A word of caution should you be afraid of heights…if not, come climb a 280 foot wind turbine to investigate this IP crime.
