More on the China Connection with Economic Espionage in the U.S.

In a follow up to our June post concerning an economic espionage case in which trade secrets of NetLogic Microsystems, Inc. were stolen, a story from Bloomberg concerning a superseding indictment.

The indictment claims that Lan Lee, 42, of Palo Alto, California, and Yuefei Ge, 34, of San Jose, California, planned to use the stolen trade secrets to garner venture-capital funding from the government of China for a company they formed.

According to an announcement from the U.S. Attorney's Office in San Francisco, Lee and Ge allegedly stole secrets from NetLogic Microsystems Inc., a Mountain View, California-based computer chip design company, and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., a Taiwan company with offices in San Jose. They sought funding from a program in China's General Armaments Department and a Chinese government program created to develop communications and laser technologies for the military.
