How Malaysia Airline's Boeing, Patent Theft, Microchips Affect You
A U.S. technology company with 20 senior staff VIPs on board Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 had just launched a new electronic warfare gadget for military radar systems days before the Boeing 777 went missing. Intellectual property of these passengers is estimated at billions of dollars, increasing speculation the motive for a rogue corporation or government to hijack this plane was a patent pending.
Patent theft has become business as usual in top corporations. Some identified as ranking highest, most with defense contracts, were represented on the MH370 missing flight. Patent thievery has a sordid history of targeting not only other corporations and governments, but also targeting individuals in worst ways, ways impacting virtually every human.
Freescale Semiconductor makes powerful microchips for defence and other industries, of major concern to targeted individuals and their human rights advocates. It had released the new product to the American market on March 3. Five days later, Flight MH370 departed Kuala Lumpur for Beijing with 239 people on board, including 20 Freescale VIPs - twelve from from Malaysia and eight Chinese nationals – and six other known companies’ employees related to the defense industry.
Freescale’s shareholders include the Carlyle Group of private equity investors, that’s past advisers included U.S. Pres. George Bush Sr. and former British Prime Minister John Major. Carlyle’s previous heavyweight clients include Saudi Bin Laden Group, a construction firm owned by Osama bin Laden’s family. The Blackstone Group, of which Jacob Rothschild serves as a member of the company’s International Advisory Board, is one of the largest of Freescale’s institutional holders with over 196 million shares. Carlyle Group and TPG Group Holdings both own Freescale shares equal to Blackstone’s.
“These were all people with a lot of experience and technical background – they were very important,” Freescale Semiconductor as said in a written statement about its employees on board MH370. That Freescale had so many highly qualified staff on board the Boeing 777 has been reported widely on Before It’s News soon after the plane was hijacked:
Freescale officials say its 20 employees were flying to China to improve its consumer products operations. Freescale website’s new links to electronic warfare (EW) technology deepens speculation that these 20 passengers alone were motive for the hijacking.
One by one, American states are passing laws forbidding forcibly implanted microchips in humans. NSA’s scandalous covert surveillance programs deeply concern people globally. Imagine the profit margin if all humans were covertly microchipped, as thousands of targeted individuals are proving they have been without their knowledge or consent, as though guinea pigs for the New World Order.

Experts claim to be baffled about how a large passenger jet could go undetected and possibly beaten military radar systems as many as six hours. An objective of the defence industry is to avoid radar with “cloaking technology.” Freescale has been actively developing chips for military radar. It says on its website that its radio frequency products meet requirements for applications in “avionics, radar, communications, missile guidance, electronic warfare and identification friend or foe.”
In June, Freescale announced a team of specialists dedicated to producing “radio frequency power products” for the defence industry. On March 3, it announced it was releasing 11 of these new gadgets for use in “high frequency, VHF and low-band UHF radar and radio communications.” Freescale has refrained commenting on whether any of its missing employees were working on the defence products.

Daily Express paints a wild picture of a post widely circulating the Internet. That post and this reporter’s Before It’s News Article, You Won’t Believe What Spies On Malaysia Plane Were Doing, about Freescale plus four other defense companies with passengers on MH370 appear to have prompted the Express to publish it’s article today about Freescale, without attributions. The Express republished the widely circulating post almost in entirety that begins, ”“Have you pieced together the puzzle of missing flight 370 to Beijing China? If not, here are your missing pieces. Patents Patents Patents.”
That speculation is that Freescale’s new patent might be the motive of hijacking the Malaysia Airline’s Boeing 777. Wild conspiracy? Maybe. High-profile seasoned pilot Field McConnell, who has warned aviation and other government authorities that a terrorist attack such as MH370 appears to be would happen due to Boeing’s uninterruptible auto-pilots, asserts, ”Remember:” Freescale has high-value passengers on board. He estimated their intellectual property value to be worth billions of dollars. Not only that, McConnell explained Freescale’s patents pending, adding that he was not saying Freescale was the perpetrator of the hijacking. McConnell details how he believes the hijacking was conducted using Boeing’s uninterruptible autopilot that Boeing has installed on every one of its jets, that government aviation officials have failed, and in the case of the U.S., refused to train pilots to use.

“I think the most likely scenario is a rogue player, whether a front end crew doing it manually or malicious external mode doing it remotely, took the plane off its flight plan and headed to another destination,” McConnell said. “Once the rogue controllers got control of it, some benign, positive, safety conscious, remote control was established and the aircraft was landed at one of these many airports that can land a plane.” He added that he’s confident the U.S. is capable of remotely controlling the plane to safety at one of 108 airports with specifications to receive such a hijacking.
Notorious Patent Thieves
America’s largest tech corporations are using a business technique called “efficient infringement,” meaning they calculate benefits of stealing patented technology against possibility of getting caught, tried in court, and paying damages and penalties. If benefits exceed costs, they target and steal. Two aspects making patent theft extremely attractive are: 1) infringement is not a criminal act, and 2) those found guilty face no jail time. Being fined is the worst fate of the perpetrator, small change for defense contractors.
The most aggressive users of this patent theft business model are fifteen of America’s largest tech corporations, at least one on the missing MH370. Leading them all is Cisco, the biggest competitor of ZTE and Huawei, two Chinese defense contractors represented on board the Malaysian Airlines missing Boeing 777. Following Cisco are Intel, IBM – that had a CEO on board MH370, Microsoft and HP. For years, these multinationals have spent millions of dollars lobbying Congress to buy legislation that would weaken existing U.S. patent infringement laws
In 13 years, between 1996 and 2008, patent owners sued those fifteen corporations 740 times for infringement and won $4 billion in damages. These big tech corporations’ political goal is to change the law so patent theft is more difficult to prove, less costly when caught, and willful infringement virtually impossible to prove.
The US cases of patent theft are too many to list here. In one 2010 example, a federal judge overseeing a trial with U.S. Bank, the country’s fifth-largest financial institution, dropped a bombshell. He ruled Data Treasury succeeded in arguing U.S. Bank might have conspired with America’s other top banks to infringe the small company’s patents.
Transnational Patent Theft
“Patents are territorial. Infringement is only possible in a country where a patent is in force.” (Wikipedia) For example, if a patent is filed in the U.S., anyone in the United States is prohibited from making, using, selling or importing the patented item. People in other countries, however, might freely make the patented item in their country. The scope of protection might vary from country to country, due to the fact that the patent is examined by the patent office in each country or region that might have different patentability, so a granted patent is difficult to enforce worldwide.
“In 2005, an FBI investigation codenamed Titan Rain revealed Chinese hackers in Guangdong stole from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and stole flight-planning software from the Air Force. The hackers accessed systems at defense contractors, such as Lockheed Martin, and the World Bank. China’s hacking drove Google out of China. WikiLeaks quoted a U.S. Embassy official saying contacts told the U.S. that the Chinese government was behind internet hacking attacks on not only Google, but also Western governments.” (You Won’t Believe What Spies On Malaysia Plane Were Doing, Dupré)
It’s no secret that Huawei and the US government aren’t best friends. The US has accused Huawei of cyberespionage on behalf of the Chinese military. Huawei is riddled with intellectual property rights issues, culminating in US Congress warning American businesses to avoid doing business with Huawei.
For example, in Feb. 2003 Cisco Systems sued Huawei for allegedly infringing on its patents and illegally copying source code in its routers and switches. (Cisco’s motion for preliminary injunction, Cisco.com. 5 February 2003. Retrieved 15 July 2011) A Cisco statement said by July 2004, Huawei removed the contested code, manuals and command-line interfaces and the case was dropped. Both sides claimed success, Cisco asserted completion of the lawsuit marked a victory for protecting intellectual property rights, and Huawei’s partner 3Com (not part of the lawsuit) noted the court order prevented Cisco from bringing another case against Huawei asserting the same or substantially similar claims.
In June 2004, a Huawei employee, Yi Bin Zhu, was caught after hours removing the casing from a $1 million piece of networking gear, diagramming, and photographing circuit boards from a competitor booth at the SuperComm tradeshow. (Burrows, Peter, 30 July 2004, Huawei isn’t in the clear yet, BusinessWeek) A security guard confiscated the photo card in Zhu’s digital camera along with a notebook containing notes and diagrams of other suppliers’ gear. Zhu denied the accusation, but was fired. The information was given to the FBI in a letter, ”Because of the potentially sensitive nature of this information, the only logical conclusion that one can draw is that the employee in question was engaged in unlawful activities that may have been a violation of the Economic Espionage Act of 1996.”
“Huawei doesn’t have the best reputation in terms of intellectual property integrity, and this certainly doesn’t help,” said Kevin Mitchell, an analyst with Infonetics Research.
Jay Hoenig of Hill and Associates, a security and risk management consultancy, encouraged foreign companies to take greater advantage of civil litigation and said it was hard to argue China’s civil system was ineffectual if litigants did not pursue all legal remedies available to them.
A European Commission investigation found Huawei Technologies Co. and ZTE Corp., China’s largest telecommunications equipment makers, benefit from significant Chinese government support, including “massive” credit lines from state-owned banks. The commission examined whether China’s export-credit policies violate World Trade Organization rules.
ZTE identified its employee aboard MH370 as Li Yanlin, an engineer on the company’s telecom gear installation and maintenance team. “In May, 2010, India banned telecommunications firms from importing from ZTE and any other Chinese networking equipment companies due to fears that they were riddled with information-stealing spyware. Two years later, Reuters reported ZTE helped funnel software and hardware from US firms Oracle, Microsoft and Cisco Systems to the Iranian government in 2010 to build a $130m nation-wide surveillance system.” (You Won’t Believe What Spies On Malaysia Plane Were Doing)
“ZTE’s thievery and spying support to Iran violated an American embargo on technology sales to the Iranian government… In May 2012, Ashley Kyle Yablon, ZTE’s Texas-based general counsel, gave to the FBI an affidavit alleging the company plotted to cover up sales to Iran. ZTE then placed Yablon on administrative leave, according to his attorney, Tom Mills. (Ibid.)
Who are principal victims of these corporations’ “efficient infringement” approach in the U.S.? Passengers aboard MH370 might be. Aside from those, principal victims are America’s independent inventors, small businesses and universities, many of which lack resources to legally fight patent theft. A look at numbers in the chart below relating to patent litigations in U.S. Federal District Courts over the past 30 years might surprise you. (IP Watchdog)

The patent theft story gets more sordid, however, including targeted individuals. Recent history shows that if an inventor dodges handing over patents to rogue entities, s/he can be targeted in worst ways. Two targeted individuals, James Walbert and Bob Boyce, both inventors, were assaulted with military grade weapons after refusing to be bullied into handing over their prize inventions.
Both Walbert and Boyce were targeted with forcibly implanted microchips that impaired them physically, including neurologically. Both Walbert’s and Boyce’s battle to survive ongoing, slow-kill injuries inflicted by RFID implants. Such implants are often mistakenly thought to be for surveillance purposes, not covert torture and murder.

Taylor, private investigator advocates for Walbert and hundreds of other Targeted Individuals. Taylor has no time for figments of imagination. He served as Chief Investigator of the Karen Silkwood Targeted Individual case, the “Iran Contra Scandal” and 3-Mile Island investigations.
“The greatest” people, in their homes, communities, and places of work, are being remotely neutralized with military grade weaponry such as covertly implanted weaponized microchips, according to Taylor.
