An anonymous reader writes "At least five businesses have alleged senior officers in the Defence Science and Technology Organisation have plagiarised intellectual property for their own research [free reg] and then passed it on to government business partners to develop a rival product. There are fears that IP plagiarising could increase with the new Defence Trade Controls Act passed last year despite warnings from the universities it would drive research offshore.
