China's IP theft is hurting the U.S.

Army Gen. Keith B. Alexander, then-U.S. Cyber Command commander and director of the National Security Agency, once famously — or infamously — stated that the illegal extraction of U.S. technology and intellectual property through cyber intrusion represented "the greatest transfer of wealth in history."
That was in 2012.

In 2018, the White House and Congress are finally recogniz- ing China's rampant campaign of state-sponsored cyber hacking and commercial theft of critical U.S. "know-how" and intel- lectual property. Although the U.S. government cannot undo this extensive knowledge transfer, it can take steps to curb the assault on America's technological advantages.
