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.

I never know who's the good, the bad, or the ugly in the economic arena because I'm not interested in bullfights, cockfights, or circenses Romanos.
But I know what to think of PayPal since BBC wrote on 2010.1204: "Online payments firm PayPal says it has cut access for donations to the whistle-blower website Wikileaks because of "policy violations"
"
I was just about to post something along those lines. Thanks. PayPal's conduct in this matter is abhorrent. I do hope Google succeeds in invading their turf, and I don't care how they do it. I trust Google more to withstand government censorship pressure than PayPal.
