PayPal: Google Stole Our Secrets
It appears that PayPal is suing Google for allegedly stealing its employees and trade secrets that may have led to the launch of Google’s mobile payment service, Google Wallet.
The 28-page lawsuit, filed in a superior court in San Jose, Calif., late Thursday, accuses Google and two former PayPal employees who now work at Google of implementing PayPal’s confidential trade secrets related to mobile payment technology.
The lawsuit came on the same day Google unveiled a phone-based mobile payment system, called Google Wallet. It specifically mentions Osama Bedier and Stephanie Tilenius, who — now at Google — took to the stage yesterday to unveil the new technology.
