Trade secret issue between Jing Zeng and Machine Zone/"Game of War"
The Wall Street Journal noted:
After working at a string of Chinese and U.S. technology jobs, Mr. Zeng landed at Machine Zone in late 2014, according to his LinkedIn profile. The Palo Alto, Calif., firm produces Game of War, an online medieval videogame that features knights and dragons. Its commercials, which have appeared on the Super Bowl, feature the model Kate Upton.
By spring, Mr. Zeng was unhappy with his boss and wanted to change teams, the complaint said, but his bosses declined. After managers told Mr. Zeng he had to leave the company, he began downloading data on user behavior from a proprietary company database
Zeng was arrested as he tried to board a plane for Beijing.
