It is no secret that Microsoft and Google hold no love for each other. Over the last few days I noticed increased amount of Microsoft's 'copyright infringement
' finger pointing at Google. Personally I find the use of 'mudslinging' tactics highly distasteful, often reserved for shady politicians. If Microsoft is the new champion of exemplary business ethics, then may I suggest that they look at their own boardroom first?
The entire altruistic campaign to bring Google to justice was spearheaded by Tom Rubin, senior Microsoft lawyer. Actions like this often result in a flurry of lawsuits. To me this is simply a brilliant tactic executed by lawyers, to further strengthen the preponderance of lawyers in the business world.
