In an earlier post we reported that Microsoft was awarded a temporary injunction preventing a former Microsoft executive (named Kai-Fu Lee) from working for Google on certain products and services.  Mr. Lee was previously the 'face of Microsoft"? in China, and Microsoft objected to him playing the same role for Google.
