Michael R. Fletcher. Intellectual Property. (Interzone #232, Jan/Feb 2011)

Industrial espionage science thriller hinging on the conceit that in order to secure their secrets, companies will fit staff with dongles which store everything they work on whilst at work, and which are kept on site at all times. Their staff log in and plug in when they arrive at the office, and when they leave they log out and plug out. Their work-memories are therefore left on site, and they have no knowledge of what they did during the work day.

Fletcher provides a clever multi-perspective story of espionage, and double-crossing.
