A guy deep in the Defense Department is actually doing something about Chinese theft of U.S. intellectual property

It’s become an unfunny joke. No matter what crucial intellectual property gets developed in the United States, it gets stolen by China or maybe Russia.

For his work collaborating with many other agencies, the team leader is a finalist in this year’s Service to America Medals program. The deputy director of the Office of Foreign Investment Review at DOD, David Rader.
