Fining China for intellectual property theft?

BreitbartThe U.S. launched a formal investigation this summer into allegations that China facilitates the theft of U.S. technology and intellectual property, in some cases forcing U.S. companies into delivering technology into Chinese hands as a cost of doing business. Under U.S. trade law, the administration can impose retalitory tarrifs and other trade sanctions against China if it concludes China is engaged in wrongdoing. Earlier reports from the U.S. government found China to be the worst infringer of intellectual property rights in the world.

I'm not sure that a fine is the right response. The right response is probably just not giving them our intellectual property to steal. But doing something about the issue is a good place to start.
