This lesson discusses the American Superconductor case study. In this incident, intellectual property (IP) from Massachusetts-based American Superconductor was stolen by Sinovel, a Chinese company. Sinovel was able to make skeletons of all the turbines and computer code and Dejan Karabasevic, an American Superconductor employee based out of Austria helped with the IP theft. Sinovel offered him many perks in exchange for his work. However, by the time he was caught it was too late and a lot of IP was lost.
