Trade Secrets and Formula One

From Autosport.com, a story about two former Ferrari engineers found guilty in an Italian court of industrial espionage for stealing trade secrets for rival Formula One competitor, Toyota.

One of the engineers -- a wind tunnel designer -- was found guilty of misappropriation of a CD-ROM with engineering and test data, files and technical drawings, used in 2002 and 2003 to develop race cars while he was working for Toyota.

According to a related story in The Register (UK), "security firms were quick to highlight the case as an example of the dangers of uncontrolled use of removable storage devices in facilitating data theft."
