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.

Could be. My thinking on it is that Google has a massive amount of legal budget to throw at the court system though. We don't even see Microsoft going head to head with Google in the courts and MS is probably one of the few that can top Google's war budget. Taking Google to court is not something I see any company looking forward too.
