Espionage, commonly known as spying for another country, is actually the act of secretly obtaining and gathering information about either a foreign government or competing industry with the intent of giving your government or company some form of strategic advantage. On the federal level, espionage is prohibited under federal law when it puts national defense in jeopardy or somehow is of benefit to a foreign nation.
Espionage is more common than most people would like to believe, despite the fact it is illegal. This in no way diminishes the seriousness of espionage charges. Federal espionage, including economic espionage as covered under the Economic Espionage Act of 1996, is treated with the utmost importance and individuals convicted of federal espionage can face deportation, imprisonment and even the death penalty.
