There have been many allegations against Chinese companies in America. Now a Chinese telecommunications company has been accused of stealing technology from Illinois-based Motorola Solutions.

The indictment says that from 2007 to 2020, Hytera used thousands of stolen documents to accelerate development of similar features.

The indictment refers to a 2008 e-mail. In this, an unknown person writes to another person that we are trying to grab whatever we can. …do you have something in mind that you need, because we are here now? Someone from the other side writes ‘haha’. Another e-mail expressed concern that some of our lies could cause trouble after Motorola found out.

If ever convicted in the case, Hytera could face a criminal fine of three times the value of the stolen trade secret and individual defendants could go to prison. However, in cases involving Chinese firms, US officials are often unable to bring suspects to court, because China is unwilling to hand them over.
