Starwood sues Hilton Hotels over alleged corporate espionage

Starwood sues Hilton Hotels over alleged corporate espionage Hotel giant Starwood Hotels late tonight filed suit against rival Hilton Hotels, accusing it of stealing trade secrets to help it launch a rival luxury chain quickly and cheaply.

My imagination got the best of me when I read the headline. I just started imagining these guys in suits (maybe they decided to wear jeans or black, who knows) copying documents, sliding files from the computer onto their flash drives, all the while looking over their shoulders. Maybe one played the look out. Or better yet, maybe they came at night, snuck into the building with flashlights, scurrying all through the Starwood offices to get the goods. Then again, maybe they did not even do the dirty work themselves. All of this is just me adding some drama to this.
