In Pictures: The 9 ugliest allegations of China-based IP theft

IP theft continues to be a threat to businesses’ bottom lines – and a major issue for Sino-American relations.

University of Wisconsin WHAT HAPPENED: A research assistant named Huajun Zhao was accused in April of having stolen samples of an experimental cancer treatment substance from the office of a professor, apparently with the aim of obtaining research funding in China. He even attempted to delete the professor's original records in order to solidify the impression that he had created the treatment in the first place.

FALLOUT: Zhao accepted a deal last week that dropped a more serious economic espionage charge in exchange for a guilty plea to computer fraud, according to local news. He was sentenced to time served, plus two years of supervised release.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
