A Sane IP Suit

PayPal sues Google over mobile plans, trade secrets | ZDNet:
"Well that didn’t take long. Just hours after Google made its mobile payment plans public eBay’s PayPal unit sued the search giant and two key executives.

The reason—the two Google executives that were the headliners at the company’s press conference—were PayPal employees up until recently. PayPal alleges that the executives—Osama Bedier and Stephanie Tilcnius—stole trade secrets that led to Google Wallet."

I say that this is sane because it is a straighforward trade secret case and not some ginned up patent fight (although goodness knows there will be some of that too)
