Google and Microsoft reach agreement over Dr. Kai-Fu Lee

Remember the legal battles over Dr. Kai-Fu Lee leaving Microsoft to work for Google?

Microsoft argued that Lee's appointment violated his contract, because he would have had access to all Vole’s secret plans before his defection.

Google counter-sued saying that it had done nothing wrong and that Microsoft was using the legal system to act unfairly.

Well, it now appears that the two giants have apparently buried the hatchet. Details of the agreement have not been made public, but it appears that both sides are reportedly very happy with how things have turned out.
