Microsoft last night filed a lawsuit against one of its former top search executives with direct knowledge of its "trade secrets" after he quit the software firm to join Google, intensifying the firms' rivalry.

The suit was filed on the same day that the internet search engine announced it had hired the executive, Dr Kai-Fu Lee, to head up its first research and development centre in China. The suit also names Google, which it says, "intentionally assisted Lee"

I'm so tempted to drop a note into one of the microsoft datacenter cages saying "All your kai-fu are belong to us".
