If convicted, each of the suspects faces a maximum of 10 years in prison.

Corporations always get the best justice money can buy.

The Chinese have an ingrained culture of stealing intellectual property that isn't going to be fixed any time soon.  If you run a company with novel products in the US, don't hire anyone who isn't at least third generation.  They understand IP is worth something, but they have no concept of stealing it as being wrong.

This can't be right.

I've been informed by the GMO folks...some of them here on Fark...that there's NO WAY seeds can get out of the lab.  Or out of test fields.

Pro-science is fine, but a failure to factor in basic human nature is inexcusable.

You pissed off Monsanto.

It's more communism than Chinese culture.  The basis of communism is a refusal to recognize individual property, intellectual or physical.

Of course, communist leaders get to claim any and all property "for The Party."  And they are, after all, The Party

Hey it is how the US got rich in the first place, by simply not recognising the concept of intellectual property, especially not the foreign type.. You should really give developing economies the same headstart you had 100+ years ago.

Sort of joking..
