Wang Jin also said he was "grieved" about the allegations that the outside world was suspected of misappropriation of commercial secrets in the name of losing computers and printers.
The loss of computers and printers will lead to leaks
In December 22nd, the Baidu Inc in violation of trade secrets grounds, the former Baidu automatic driving division general manager Wang Jin, and Wang Jin's American Jing Chi company, sued the Beijing intellectual property court, claims 50 million yuan, the court has accepted.
Baidu Inc pointed out that Wang Jin violated the obligations of executives' loyalty and limitation of competition. When he was in charge of Baidu, he founded the Jing Chi technology company and recruited Baidu employees through start-up companies. Most importantly, Wang Jin thought that when he left, he claimed that he had lost a laptop and a multi-function machine, which is very likely to cause the leakage of Baidu's commercial secrets and technical secrets.
It can be understood that the computer will store confidential documents. How can the printer lead to the disclosure of enterprise information?
A security expert explained to the surging news reporters that many printers had hard disks and some printers were equipped with network storage. Enterprise printer loss is likely to cause enterprise confidential disclosure, and the printer has been a relatively weak link. "Mainly look at the company's network management configuration strategy is strictly not strict, in theory who used the printer, played what documents, all have historical records. There had been a case of hackers stealing information from the printer. "
For the two missing devices, Wang Jin said in a media interview in December 28th that he had returned all his own computers and two printers when he left. The lost laptop and all-in-one are all products that have been scrapped. Therefore, he paid 318 yuan to Baidu before leaving, or Baidu would not quit.
Baidu had to provide a surging news show commitment letter signed by Wang Jin, in March 31st this year, Wang Jin is on the last day, he signed a commitment letter with Baidu, which said he lost due to the negligence of Baidu Inc issued a laptop computer and multifunction machine. Wang Jin promised: "all legal responsibilities caused by the loss of computers and all-in-one aircraft (including, but not limited to, the disclosure of business information and technical information related to Baidu Inc in computers") are all I undertake.
The surging news reporter inquired about the apple lost by Wang JinMacBookThe Air laptop market is on the market in the first half of 2012, and the Canon's one machine can be found from the model, which is about 2008, and has been shut down before and after 2013. From the time of use, there is a possibility of abandonment.
The security experts also told reporters that even if the machine could not be used normally, it would be possible to remove the data as long as the hard disk was not damaged.
Wang Jin said do not want to play bickering
In addition, Wang Jin also emphasized in his December 28th interview that he had never worked in two companies at the same time. He responded to Baidu's claim that he was quietly preparing for Jing Chi technology during his tenure.
In response, Zhao Zhanling, a IT legal expert and a special researcher of the intellectual property center of China University of Political Science and Law, told reporters surging news that Wang Jin and Baidu Inc signed an executive's obligation of competing restrictions. They could not engage in competitive relations with Baidu within two years after leaving office. No matter whether Wang Jin began to prepare a new company or not, in fact, he had violated the agreement.
The surging journalists noticed that Baidu did not initiate litigation from violating the obligation to restrict competition, but instead chose to encroach on business secrets with more difficult evidence.
Zhao Zhanling said that the proof of infringement of trade secrets is indeed more difficult, there are two reasons for Baidu to do so, one is the non competition obligations are valid over two years is not binding, the main penalty only liquidated damages; on the other hand, the Treaty can only be the Wang Jin, once Wang Jin is not in the scene within two years following bear the main post, Baidu cannot accuse companies of the business caused by the infringement. Therefore, Baidu asked the court to request that Wang Jin and Jing Chi technology stop using the business secret to compete in the automatic driving business related to Baidu, which is more reasonable.
"Baidu wants to prove that Wang Jin infringes its business secrets, including, but is not limited to, technical secrets and business secrets. Relatively speaking, the latter is more likely to give evidence, as long as it can prove that Jing Chi technology has acquired Baidu's previous customers, and there will be great odds." Zhao Zhanling said.
After Jing Chi technology settled in Guangzhou, Wang Jin said he would immediately move his family to Guangzhou and plan to move the company's engineers through a talent apartment. The dispute with Baidu, Wang Jin said, Jing Chi will focus in the development of unmanned, do not want to play bickering.
At present, the company in March this year just incorporated start-up company in the field of automatic driving progress in May, completed the first unmanned test; June, obtain test licenses in the states of California, in the month and completed the open road test; August, Jing Chi and Anhui city of Anqing Province signed a comprehensive agreement, the king allowed Chi as early as before the end of 2017 in Anqing on the 50 vehicles unmanned vehicle operation test; in September, the completion of the road test of Silicon Valley peak commuting...... In addition, the company plans to implement the operation of unmanned mass production vehicles in 2020.
