Your Economic Espionage Act at Work for You in Ohio

From the Akron Beacon Journal, the story of the arrest of a man from Ohio accused of sending his employer's trade secrets including price lists, cost lists, copies of internal e-mail, customer trip reports, purchase specifications and supplier information to a competitor in the hydraulic gear pump industry, Dosco GPM Holdings of South Africa. The man, Jack Buffin, was employed by a company named Permco of Streetsboro, Ohio.

Buffin's attorney, Larry Zuckerman of Cleveland, declined comment except to say a "plea agreement" has been filed. But Assistant U.S. Attorney Justin J. Roberts said he could not confirm that.
