Snowden revelations hover over US-China talks

Reuters/ AFR | July 9, 2013
Revelations by former US spy agency contractor Edward Snowden will make it harder for the United States to confront China at talks this week over the alleged cyber theft of trade secrets worth hundreds of billions of dollars each year.

The US District Court in Manhattan charged three New York University researchers in May with conspiring to take bribes from Chinese medical and research outfits for details about NYU research into magnetic resonance imaging technology.

Arrests by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Homeland Security Department for IP infringements rose 159 per cent and indictments increased 264 per cent from 2009-13, according to a report released in June by the US Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator.

The Commission on the Theft of American Intellectual Property called for tough penalties including banking sanctions, bans on imports and blacklisting in US financial markets.
