Huawei product designers arrested and charged with espionage for giving intel to LeEco
Sadly, it seems six product designers at Huawei forgot this most important rule while leaking confidential data to fellow Chinese firm LeEco. The latter has been making headlines with its efforts of selling its affordable smartphones in the U.S. at competitive prices while working on stuff like smart bycicles and electric cars, among many other things.
Huawei has already pressed charges against the alleged snitches. Meanwhile, LeEco denies receiving information from them and bounces the topic back to another pressing matter. Huawei insists that LeEco stole 2 technological patents for an antenna design and a children's smartwatch from them. The alleged informants' recent arrest is another drop of bad blood between the two.
