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.

While I'd always defend your right to think in an US-centric style and, of course, everybody else's right to think differently, i.e. globally, the axiology demonstrated here is quite interesting.
Assuming that most people on this planet share the view that it is wise to consider the legality of anything one does or omits to do there remains the question how wise it is to neglect any value not implicit to legality.
The regimes of Nazism, Stalinism, and Guantanamism ought to challenge all people with a legality-only approach to reality.

Really? You're comparing Guantanamo Bay with the Nazi Death Camps? Soviet stalags? Gitmo is a problem, but let's not get carried away here.
