Sentence for Former Corning Employee in Trade Secrets Case

In a follow-up to our posting from January here concerning a former Corning employee who stole trade secrets and sold them to a competitor in Taiwan, the Evansville (IN) Courier & Press has the story of his sentencing to 4 years in federal prison under the Economic Espionage Act.

According to federal prosecutors, the employee admitted selling stolen blueprints about Corning's liquid-crystal-display glassmaking process and selling them for $34,000 to PicVue Electronics Ltd. in 2000.
