The guys at SeattlePi
have uncovered a bit of espionage going on in Redmond. According to Microsoft, a former employee took a position with the company in order to spy on them for his startup. In a lawsuit filed in King Couny Superior Court in Seattle, Microsoft alleges former employee Miki Mullor
, founder of Ancora Technologies Inc, sought employment with the company because he believed Microsoft's System Locked Preinstallation
anti-piracy technology (SLP), infringed on an Ancora patent. During the application process Mullor claimed that Ancora was out of business—which doesn't appear to be true.
