Chinese firm charged with stealing tech from Mass. company

A federal grand jury, acting in a case that could have implications for US-China relations, indicted a Chinese wind turbine maker Thursday on charges that it stole key technology from a Massachusetts company.

The criminal charges escalate a two-year battle playing out in Chinese courts between American Superconductor Corp., which does business as AMSC, and Sinovel Wind Group Co. of Beijing, one of the largest wind turbine makers in the world. It may also add fuel to one of the biggest sources of tension between the United States and China: the theft of intellectual property from US companies.
