HP: Mark Hurd is violating our trade secrets as part of Oracle

Quote:
Updated: A day after becoming Oracle’s co-president, Mark Hurd is facing a lawsuit from Hewlett-Packard over trade secrets and confidentiality agreements.
The lawsuit was filed in Santa Clara County in California. Non-compete clauses generally don’t hold up in California. However, HP is alleging that Hurd has trade secrets and can hurt the company’s business. Hurd resigned from HP last month following a sexual harassment probe. Oracle CEO Larry Ellison defended Hurd and then quickly hired him.

I don't see this going anywhere. There exists no "non-compete" clause in the contract. He just can't share HP secrets. That will be nearly impossible to enforce, but that is HP's fault for not having such a clause.

This was on PBS news yesterday. It will be interesting to see how this turns out.

If I remember correctly didn't Bill Gates leave IBM with Dos because IBM's lawyers didn't draw up the proper contract. Just a little trillion dollar mistake.

Hi there
Oracle is DEFINITELY up to something -- there seem rumours as well connected to a combination of ORACLE, IBM, MS and SAP --should be an interesting mix here since all 4 firms use underlying DB's for thier various applications ORACLE probably being favoured by SAP and IBM (even over their own DB2 product) and so on while MS is definitely looking at Oracle possibly in sorting out what to do with SQL server.

Looks like a case of a dog chasing its own tail here.

Cheers
