Furthermore, Tan revealed that the investigating team is approaching the matter with utmost seriousness. “Penalties for such crimes are grievous and anyone who would do this clearly isn’t very smart,” he said.
“We treat theft/larceny, and if relevant to this case, industrial espionage, very seriously – it is cheating, and cheating doesn’t sit well with us,” he wrote, adding that Razer “worked months on end to conceptualize and develop these units.”
