Here is an article that states that a computer science professor from NYU testified that it wasn't any secret code he stole and just opensource software that he worked on while at Goldman.

If that's true, that's awful.

The article may not say anything, but that's pretty public background to the story. It was almost more an issue of non-compete than it was of IP theft ... and/or it was one conflated to look like the other.

Where in the article did it say anything about a non-compete agreement?

NYC jury: Ex-Goldman programmer stole code

A New York jury convicted Sergey Aleynikov of theft of trade secrets and transportation of stolen property in interstate and foreign commerce.

(AP) - A former Goldman Sachs programmer was convicted Friday of stealing secret computer code that enables high-speed trading from the company when he took a new job with a rival last year.

The jury in U.S. District Court in Manhattan convicted Sergey Aleynikov of North Caldwell, N.J., of theft of trade secrets and transportation of stolen property in interstate and foreign commerce.

Mr. Aleynikov of North Caldwell, N.J., could face up to 15 years in prison when he is sentenced March 18. Mr. Aleynikov and his lawyer, Kevin Marino, declined to comment after the verdict.
