A former manager at the company that makes Game of War -- that's the one with Kate Upton, not the one with Ned Stark -- has been arrested for allegedly downloading trade secrets relating to the title. Jing Zeng was grabbed by FBI agents at the airport shortly before he was due to board a flight to Beijing on August 20th. As the Wall Street Journal reports, it's the latest in a series of efforts by American companies to prevent the theft of sensitive data, which is often taken by rival nations. It's not clear if Zeng had any intention to share the information with others, since at the same time he was engaged in brinksmanship with his employers concerning a severance package. The case has yet to go to trial, but we'd suggest that no matter how much you hate your colleagues, you'll probably hate a trip to the slammer slightly more.
