Legal Back in 2010, Apple, Google, Intel, Adobe, and a few others settled with the US Department of Justice regarding their anti-poaching agreements concerning employees. While the CEOs did a good job of escaping possible prosecution, the affected employees filed a class action lawsuit about this, and judge Lucy Koh has just unsealed a number of emails concerning this case. They paint a pretty grim picture of Steve Jobs and Eric Schmidt engaging in mafia practices, threatening smaller companies with patent litigation if they didn't agree to the no-poaching agreements, or demanding to handle matters verbally as to not leave a paper trail.

I believe Google has done less wrong

I wrong is a wrong, period, there is no such thing as "less wrong", I find amazing how Google apologizers distord reality to have Google not look to bad.

Yes, there is such a thing. That's why there are very different penalties for, say, graffiti vandals and murderers or kidnappers.
