I never knew about this going on after WW2, although I'd heard there were lots of defections.

Project paper clip brought a lot of scientist to America …… some have even speculated there was a certain understanding that some companies would or did give economic considerations in contracts to US government in exchange for steering certain scientist to certain companies.

My father was a chemical engineer for Dow Chemical in Midland, Mi (corporate HQ) and worked in aspirin plant and on jet fuel additives. Dow employed several research chemist from Germany, Austria, Romania, Hungary, & Poland who came here post WW2. All seemed to my father to be genuinely grateful for a 'second chance' here. The alternative being in their home country as it struggled to rebuild or worse in a Russian labor facility where many had seen colleagues or even family end up.

I suppose the spoils of war have always include intellectual properties as well.

P.S. For decades Dow was one of the leading producers of Aspirin in the world, their main competition was Bayer …… a German company. And Dow family had a long history of economic war with the German chemical industry going back to 1900.
The company history is quite interesting.
