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.

As far as PayPal cutting off WikiLeaks, sharing classified government documents, even if you come across them accidentally, is illegal.

Only if you're American.

The whole "Loose lips sink ships" thing.

There was nothing of any real intelligence value in the material leaked material. It was simply embarrassing.

There is no higher crime than embarrassing a high ranking political or military figure. Just ask that poor fellow from England who's still fighting extradition over the high crime of embarrassing the US military. ;)
