“Imagine a foreign firm stole the closely guarded Coca-Cola formula— a trade secret worth billions— and used that information to underwrite a massive new plant in South Carolina. Imagine Coke went to court and won a decisive victory that prevented the thief from using the syrup formula unless fairly compensated. Now, imagine folks in South Carolina urging that theft be excused because the company has promised to create jobs”.
Correct. The US gov’t will look the other way – usually due to lobbying + other payoffs, if it means “promoting business”.
The problem with “promoting business” is it also lets your competitors steal your critical trade secrets and use them to put you out of business too.
What a moronic government we have.
