Yahoo! Trade Secrets Case

From Forbes, a story about Yahoo! Inc.'s trade secrets case against a group of seven ex-employees and their new employer, MForma Group.

According to the report, Yahoo! has won a restraining order against former workers accused of stealing secrets for the new company, a global mobile-games publisher.

Yahoo! charged in the suit that MForma collaborated with former Yahoo! workers "to systematically and illicitly acquire and misappropriate Yahoo!'s trade secrets and illegally raid Yahoo!'s employee base."

The court enjoined the former employees and MForma from using insights derived from Yahoo! pending a court hearing in July.

As for the specifics of the trade secrets at issue, the complaint claims that thousands of pages of Yahoo! mobile business data was stolen including market research, contact lists, and Power Point presentations.
