A corporate-espionage case in which an executive from electronics 
manufacturer, AMX Corp, broke into the e-mail system of the marketing 
firm working for a competitor Crestron Electronics to steal sensitive 
business information has rocked that industry.

David Goldenberg, a resident of Long Island and former vice president in 
the New York-area office of Richardson, Texas.-based AMX Corp., pled 
guilty this week in a New Jersey courtroom to felony wiretapping in 
connection with illegally accessing the internal e-mail at Crestron’s 
sales and marketing firm, Sapphire Marketing, based in Woodcliff Hills, 

As part of the plea deal with the Bergen Court Prosecutor’s Office, 
which has spared Goldenberg from a criminal trial, the prosecutor there, 
Brian Lynch, is recommending probation.

That’s in part because Goldenberg has been largely cooperative after 
being approached by the Paramus Police Department in February 2008 after 
Sapphire filed a complaint about suspicions that business e-mail 
concerning AMX was being intercepted and Goldenberg had something to do 
with it.
