[Bloomberg] Advanced Micro Devices Sues Ex-Worker Over Trade Secrets - Page 5

post #41 of 46
This type of stuff is why I have to spend days on end in a room for 8 hours a day in a city far away every year to learn what I need to do to not let this happen and what I need to do to make sure I don't say anything that could get the company or me in trouble.

The way they play out the scenarios they always make it sound all innocent like the guy barely did anything wrong then BOOM caught jail no job lost your wife etc etc will never work in a professional setting again kiss your expensive education goodbye.

I am good on keeping my lips sealed. Anytime I am not sure if my idea is my own (because of previous employer) or weather they own my idea I call my lawyer.

Not nearly as big of a problem in my industry but they make a HUGE deal about it not happening. So I def would never want to hear a I told you so. The training is a CYA for them so that if I do screw up they can say we train this guy every year on not doing any of that stuff.

----

Willing to bet if these guys had access to truly wonderful documents that either AMD has horrible security policies or these guys went to a training that explained you couldn't do this stuff.

I know 2 things happen at places I have been... Certain documents are locked to only be viewed and can't be moved or copied. Any transfers to a external device can only happen for approved users and those transfers are def recorded and would def be looked over if the person left the company.


People have been fired for using camera phones to take PC screen shots, record marketing presentations, accessing information on protected accounts that send out flags when accessed, etc etc etc and usually people are just looking to leak the info for no money at all but those few moments or days or even weeks or months could be enough time for a company to react to an add or a new product or for people to make stock decisions prior to an official announcement.

Just NVIDIA knowing that AMD might have someone on the horizon that could have a higher profit margin at the same performance level could greatly change NVIDIAs plan of actions.

But like others have said... sounds to me these guys where just idiots like the Chinese national who didn't return is NASA laptop when he went back home... and who was expected of treason but turned out just had porn and probably thought he could keep the laptop.

Nortel's network was hacked and spied on for nearly 14 years...

14 years of hackers watching every single move you make, ranging from market targeting and products' design. That's every management's worst nightmare, and spies' dream come true.


Now Nortel is a dead telecommunication company.

It happens all the time dating back to the 1700s involving a French Jesuit of all ppl. This Jesuit entered China and smuggled out the Chinese methods of porcelain making.

Even older...

Although silk was well known in Europe and most of Asia, China was able to keep a near monopoly on silk production. The monopoly was defended by an imperial decree, condemning to death anyone attempting to export silkworms or their eggs. Only around the year 300 CE did a Japanese expedition succeed in taking some silkworm eggs and four young Chinese girls, who were forced to teach their captors the art of sericulture.[16] Techniques of sericulture were subsequently introduced to Japan on a larger scale by frequent diplomatic exchanges between the 8th century and 9th centuries.

Starting in the 4th century BCE silk began to reach the West by merchants who would exchange it for gold, ivory, horses or precious stones. Up to the frontiers of the Roman Empire, silk became a monetary standard for estimating the value of different products. Hellenistic Greece appreciated the high quality of the Chinese goods and made efforts to plant mulberry trees and breed silkworms in the Mediterranean basin. Sassanid Persia controlled the trade of silk destined for Europe and Byzantium.
The monks sent by Justinian give the silkworms to the emperor.

According to story by Procopius,[17] it was not until 552 CE that the Byzantine emperor Justinian obtained the first silkworm eggs. He had sent two Nestorian monks to Central Asia, and they were able to smuggle silkworm eggs to him hidden in rods of bamboo. While under the monks' care, the eggs hatched, though they did not cocoon before arrival. The Byzantine church was thus able to make fabrics for the emperor, with the intention of developing a large silk industry in the Eastern Roman Empire, using techniques learned from the Sassanids.
