Google is fully aware of Lee's promises to Microsoft, but has chosen to ignore them, and has encouraged Lee to violate them.I can understand Microsoft believes it has the grounds to prevent Mr. Lee from going to a competitor. I understand, but I hope the court ultimately finds Mr. Lee has not violated the spirit of his agreement and lets him work for Google.
What I don't understand is how Microsoft can sue Google for encouraging Mr. Lee to violate his agreement. I think Microsoft has stepped over the line there. Hopefully, this is not a sign of more anti-competitive litigation to come.
