Legal Ding ding ding ding - I think we have a record here. Launched yesterday, Google Wallet has already attracted a lawsuit. While patent lawsuits are teh shizzle these days, this lawsuit is a little different, so sadly I can't trot out my usual 'software patents bad' lines (aww). PayPal has sued Google over its Wallet service, claiming that one key former PayPal executive who accepted a job at Google took trade secrets with him.

This may ruin Paypal's ambitions to replace Western Union as the world's No1 choice for small time money launderers, tax evaders and fraudsters. I'm just surprised that Paypal wasn't closed down years ago for constantly breaking just about every consumer protection and banking law in existence.
