Employee Poaching Revelations

So we've all probably known for a time about ongoing rumors and stances of non-compete in regard to employees between Apple, Google, and many others, but I found this recent article on The Verge and thought it was very interesting, especially because some of the emails are from Steve Jobs:

Quote:
Steve Jobs threatened patent litigation if Palm wouldn’t agree to stop hiring Apple employees, says former Palm CEO Edward Colligan in a statement dated August 7th, 2012. The allegation is backed up by a trove of recently-released evidence that shows just how deeply Silicon Valley's no-hire agreements pervaded in the mid-2000s. Apple, Google, Intel, and others are the focus of a civil lawsuit into the "gentleman’s agreements," in which affected employees are fighting for class action status and damages from resulting lost wages, potentially reaching into the hundreds of millions of dollars.
This is more industry related than anything, but I think it provides some unique insight into some of the lesser known workings inside our industries.
