    In particular, you might want to look into the Economic Espionage Act of
    1996. Among other things, the penalties were turbo-charged: Fines up to
    $10 million and 15 years in prison if the benefactor of the purloined
    information is foreign, $5 million and 10 years in prison if the
    benefactor is domestic. See U.S.C. 18 at:
