Escalating China’s IP theft to Tesla seeking assistance from Apple on the case
Posted On July 15, 2019
One Chinese former Tesla engineer is suspected of stealing the self-driving technology by uploading in excess of 300,000 files as well as source code to his personal iCloud storage account before quitting in January. Tesla now is seeking help from Apple by providing relevant logging records to aid the investigation. The story came out amid the growing trade tensions between China and the US, which is expected to raise more concerns over IP protections and further deteriorate bilateral ongoing business.
