US Charges Chinese Professor Accused of Stealing Trade Secrets for Huawei”

Huawei requested in writing for the US Commerce Department to explain fully why it detained the equipment in 2017, why it chose to release it now, and why it took nearly two years to recognize that the equipment's detention was not justified.

The equipment included computer servers, Ethernet switches, and other gear made by Huawei in China, It was meant to go back to China after commercial testing and certification at a laboratory in California in September 2017. The equipment was then shipped back at the government's expense. "Huawei views the decision to return the technology as a tacit admission that the seizure was unlawful and arbitrary", said Huawei in its announcement, which also revealed that the lawsuit has been dropped as a outcome.

U.S. prosecutors have filed criminal charges against Chinese professor Bo Mao in Texas for allegedly stealing technology from a California-based company to benefit Huawei.

US investigators have accused a Chinese educator of misrepresentation for supposedly taking innovation from a California organization to profit Huawei, in another took shots at the beset Chinese broadcast communications hardware creator.

The Chinese company allegedly has been attempting to "misappropriate" the Californian company's circuit board technology since at least 2016, according to a Texas court filing by the United States government last month.

Mao, an associate professor at Xiamen University in China who also became a visiting professor at a Texas university last autumn, first gained attention as part of a Texas civil case between Huawei and Silicon Valley startup CNEX Labs Inc.

During his time at the University of Texas, Mao had entered into a licensing and non-disclosure agreement with the Californian company to access the circuit board technology, stating that the technology would only be used for academic research purposes.

Huang, who had worked for the US Huawei subsidiary, resigned from the firm in 2013 and three days later he helped to start CNEX.

Where the story of alleged corporate theft takes an unexpected twist is that Huawei itself sued CNEX and former employee Yiren Huang in 2017 for the theft of trade secrets.

As a major aspect of its counterclaims, CNEX said Mao had requested one of its circuit sheets for an examination venture and that, after it sent the board to the teacher, he utilized it for an investigation attached to Huawei. He said the company spent $11 billion on US supplies a year ago and an estimated 40,000 U.S.jobs depend on its business.

As Reuters reported, the involved jury in June decided that neither Huawei nor CNEX were entitled to damages. The US Commerce Department, citing unidentified export violation concerns, seized the equipment while it was in transit.

This week Poland and the U.S. signed a joint agreement to "ensure only trusted and reliable suppliers participate in networks", - a deal that may take a swipe at Huawei.

In "Will Trump Sell Out the USA on Huawei?", a guest op-ed published by the Wall Street Journal on Monday, Soros, head of the New York-based Open Society Foundations, praised Trump's China policy as "a great achievement" but warned Trump might soon "undermine it in pursuit of a deal" with China.
