Chinese Company Accused Of Stealing Motorola Technology

More evidence of claims Chinese Companies are stealing technology secrets and intellectual property has been revealed.

A US court has heard claims that Hytera Communications a Chinese technology company, stole trade secrets for digital mobile radio technology developed by Motorola Solutions a major supplier to Australian telecommunication carriers.

Prosecutors claimed that Hytera recruited and hired Motorola employees to take proprietary information from internal databases from 2007 to 2020.

The damming details are contained in a 21-count federal indictment unsealed Monday in the Chicago Court.

The names of other Chinese Companies charged in the indictment remained sealed.

Bloomberg reported that in 2020, Motorola won a $764.6 million civil court case against its Chinese rival after a jury concluded Hytera stole critical trade secrets for two-way radio technology used by school officials, utility workers and construction crews.

Hytera denied stealing technology and said it developed its products on its own.

It has appealed the verdict.

US based representatives of Hytera, did not immediately respond to emails and a voicemail seeking comment on the indictment.
