Earlier today, the U.S. Department of Justice indicted a wind turbine manufacturer based in China, Sinovel, for stealing trade secrets.

The indictment alleges that Sinovel stole intellectual property from AMSC, a clean energy company based in Dovens, MA, and subsequently sold the stolen technology to customers in Massachusetts.

“Today’s indictment proves that the AMSC allegations against Sinovel are based on concrete and valid evidence,” said Melanie Hart, an analyst at the Center for American Progress Senior Policy Analyst for China Energy and Climate Policy. “AMSC has now won two swift and clear judicial successes, first in Austria and now here in the United States. If Chinese courts issue a dramatically different ruling based on the exact same evidence, that will raise big questions

And with all the US corporations outsourcing its work and technology to China, a lot more of this technology theft is going on. China won't destroy the US, it's the US corporations that are doing it themselves.

I am sure the Chinese are shaking in their shoes over this if Obama & Holder are after them. With the lies & coverup surrounding the IRS, NSA, DOJ, & Benghazi scandals, you would think we would be more concerned with cleaning up our own backyard before we go after the Chinese. This is typical of the Obama Administration and will not change as long as he is in office & controls the Senate. 2014 Elections are coming - stop this madness!!

Not even surprising. The Chinese are professional thieves, backed by their government. What do they have that has NOT been stolen from other countries? And yet, we still do business with these crooks. (Although, that is not to say that people should broaden their hate towards all Asians, mistaking them for Chinese. I've seen a lot of posts and real life instances of such uninformed, mistaken-races prejudice.)
