May 20 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg’s Mike Riley reports on China’s alleged hacking into U.S companies on Bloomberg Television's “In The Loop.” (Source: Bloomberg)

That is a good question.

One of the things they are not hoping to a cobblers is to get these guys in a u.s. courtroom.

-- not hoping to accomplish is to get these guys in the u.s. courtroom.

What this is more likely about is to create a public record, a document in a court that has a body of evidence that the u.s. has been electing in some cases for years about how this espionage, specifically chinese espionage, against u.s. companies work.

They want to make a decision between the kind of spying the nsa does and the kind of spying china does, which is targeting copies, targeting their technology, and handing that two chinese companies so that they can better compete.

They say that is outside the bounds, and a totally different approach to this.

Could china respond by further indicting nsa hackers?

We know for a long time that they have been targeting u.s. companies.
