During a Nov. 16 appearance at Mississippi State sponsored by the Office of Research and Economic Development and the Office of Facility Security, Florida businessman, consultant and advocate Brett Kingstone warned his audience that the U.S. must protect its intellectual property and innovative technology.

Kingstone also shared war stories from his own battle against trade-secret piracy and counterfeiting. In September 2002, he and his company won $42 million, the largest jury verdict in the history of the State of Florida for an intellectual property crime, for a case against a group of counterfeiters based in Shanghai, China, that took three years to bring to civil trial and also was pursued by the FBI.

A video archive of Kingstone's presentation, "The Real War: Technology Theft," is available online at http://www.msworkforceuniversity.com/ored/?p=98, but a password is required. If you are interested in viewing the video, please contact MSU Facility Security Officer Neil Lewis at (662) 325-8682.
