ex-Goldman Sachs programmer gets 8 years in prison for stealing HFT programming code. Now the seriousness of the crime is a serious ast plagiarism or cheating in college exam. What deep secret did the programmer steal that was so secretive? What was the dirty secret that Goldman Sachs insiders(management) didn't want their competitors or the public to know? If the code is that valuable you'll everybody want to break into Goldman sachs and stealing it. Goldmans Sachs are theives they should know better about stealing. There is no honor among theives man.
