Following Trade Secrets Litigation

$600 Million in Trade Secrets Stopped From Getting to China

Very interesting article.  Apparently, a former software engineer for a telecomm company based near Chicago was indicted based on a random search of her luggage, prior to travel to China, which revealed trade secret information worth $600 million.  Note that she was an employee of the telecomm company–if I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times–your employees are the greatest threat to your trade secrets.  Make sure you are adequately protected from this type of exposure.
