A court has delivered prison sentences to former researchers who tried 
to steal Korean-developed WiBro technology, the third-generation global 
standard wireless broadband technology.

The Seoul Central District Court said Sunday that it sentenced a former 
researcher from Korean IT company POSDATA to three years in prison for 
attempting to sell the company's core WiBro technology to a U.S. firm.

It also sentenced four other accomplices to 18 to 30 months in prison 
with a stay of execution for three to four years and 120-160 hours of 
public service.

The researchers were accused of stealing the technology through external 
hard drives and email from last September to March of this year and 
leaking it to a company they established in the U.S.

According to prosecutors, the leakers planned to headhunt some 30 
researchers from POSDATA, offering high salaries and stock options as 
incentives, to complete the technology and then sell it to a U.S. 
communications company for W180 billion (US$1=W916).
