Spying in the British milk industry
According to the Leicester Mercury, a dairy paid a competitor’s employee £40,000 to steal sales records from its rival so it could steal its customers. (http://www.thisisleicestershire.co.uk/news/Dairy-paid-man-stealrival/article-1088281-detail/article.html).
The issue here is not that this is a cow-eat-cow world, but that every industry has critical information that would be of value to competitors. And like the dairy in question, virtually nobody ever bothers to identify this information or to protect it.
