A newly revised spy law enables China to arbitrarily acquire intellectual properties (IPs) to take over the United States, according to cyber security expert Casey Fleming.
On April 26, the Chinese communist regime passed the new version of its anti-espionage law, which will take effect on July 1.
The revision has expanded the definition of espionage, making it broader and vaguer, which increased the range of information and resources that Beijing considers relevant to national security.
For example, the scope of the subject of stealing secrets is expanded to “other documents, data, materials, and items related to national security and interests.”
The newly revised anti-espionage law also classifies selling out to espionage organizations and their agents as espionage, as well as “conducting cyberattacks against state organs, secret-related units, or key information infrastructure.”
Fleming pointed to the new legislative move, saying that it would shake up the business world in China.
“Companies doing business in China are ordered by Chinese communist law to share all of their data and all of their IP with the Chinese Communist Party. And they’re ordered to work with a sister company in China, which is completely controlled by the CCP, and they are again ordered to turn over all data and intellectual property,” Fleming, CEO of intelligence and security strategy firm BlackOps Partners, recently told the “China in Focus” program on The Epoch Times’ sister media outlet NTD.
