      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

Lawsuit accuses Google of code theft

1 post in this topic

A Silicon Valley start-up has filed a lawsuit against Google, claiming an engineer employed at the search giant stole software code to create the popular online social networking service Orkut.com.

 

The lawsuit alleges that Google engineer Orkut Buyukkokten stole code from former employer Affinity Engines to create Google's Orkut social networking site. The suit also alleges that Buyukkokten promised he would not develop a competing social networking service when he left to join Google.

 

Affinity Engines, which filed the lawsuit on May 25 in the Superior Court of California in Santa Clara, is seeking unspecified damages and royalties from Google.

 

Google spokesman David Krane confirmed the lawsuit, but said Orkut did not contain any source code from Affinity Engines.
