    Tough one when you think about it, I mean trading off trade secrets is never a good thing and it seems Google is taking full advantage.

    There's no way Google's going to get out of this one without paying out. The exec knowingly gave information that was paid for by Paypal (he was their employee) to Google. NOT the best way to start things off, unfortunately.

    Also read about the switch of two Paypal top executives to Google to help develop the Google Wallet, What paypal is now suing google for.
    Another twist of events for google. Even if Google doesn't come out of it, the product is definitely going to sweep the market.
