A lesson for chinese data grabbers

It seems to me that we in the west are perfectly happy if our data is being slurped by our own guys. When it's the chinese, however, it goes to a different level.

The lesson for china is simply to buy out a western company and everyone will be fine. Actually, they already seem to be doing that.

As for who the lawyers go after, I can't see them going after the chinest agencies that actually wrote and installed the malware before the phones were shipped. Who else CAN they hit?
