It's my fault for calling the thread "cyberspying" rather than "cyber hacking"--because there is a distinct difference.
Every country spies on each other, so some degree of cyber spying is tolerated and accepted. What distinguishes what the Chinese are doing is that they go after non-governmental entities and steal intellectual property, patents, commercial licenses, and many other things without paying for them--and reverse-engineering everything they steal to mass-produce it cheaper than Western countries can make it.
Like Obama or not (and I certainly don't), he's right to call China out on this crap. It only hurts our country and American jobs.
