Google ready to lose Microsoft battle

From the moment it hired Kai-Fu Lee from Microsoft Google anticipated the legal battle and put measures in place to deal with losing. When it hired Kai-Fu Lee away from Microsoft last month, Google anticipated the prospect of legal wrangling with its rival, according to court documents unsealed earlier this week.

Google in fact had devised a Plan B for Lee — 12 months of paid leave in the event the executive is barred from working at the search giant because of a non-compete clause with his former employer, according to documents filed in King County Superior Court in Washington state.
