My Point of View: Fear and Loathing in China- Corporate America’s Suicide Pact

The assault on American trade secrets continues

Perhaps the most egregious case belongs to Fellowes Corp., one of the oldest American companies in the world. Their Chinese business “partner” staged a hostile takeover of the document shredder manufacturer and completely ripped off its in-country assets.

So remember, the next time you check out those Chinese manufacturers at a security trade show, know that you probably already saw that exact same technology in an American booth.
