In The News
Morrison & Foerster partner John P. Carlin discussed the increasing number of China-related hacking indictments by the U.S. Department of Justice including cases against at least a dozen individuals and companies in the last year alone in the NPR article entitled “Charges Against Chinese Hackers Are Now Common. Why Don't They Deter Cyberattacks?”
Indicating the indictments send a public signal while at the same time laying groundwork for the United States to use other tools to pressure China to stop, Carlin said, "If we're going to change this behavior, it has to be part of a larger strategy of raising the cost and includes all of the instruments of U.S. power, including the power to sanction under the Treasury Department.”
