EBay sued the Internet giant Google and its two managers – Osama Bedir and Stephanie Tilenius, accusing them of what they use trade secrets EBay and its payment system PayPal. Bedir and Tilenius previously worked at PayPal, and now they head a new project to create a Google payment system via mobile phones in partnership with MasterCard, Citigroup and cellular operator Sprint. This lawsuit shows that the sector of mobile payments will be fighting many large companies, since this segment promises huge profits.
Both managers have worked in EBay and PayPal about 10 years, and they are leading specialists to develop new mobile technologies. EBay says that Bedir before leaving the company copied some important documents regarding the system of mobile payments and, thus, increased the competitiveness of Google.
