Bright-eyed Google just got a bit brighter, with a court ruling allowing Kai-Fu Lee, former Microsoft executive, to work for Google. Under the condition that he does not recruit other Microsoft employees to work over at Google. The Wall Street Journal says;

Kai-Fu Lee remains barred from working on products, services or projects he worked on at Microsoft, including computer search technology. But while the judge said that a noncompete agreement Mr. Lee signed with Microsoft is valid, he said recruiting and staffing a Google center in China would not violate that agreement.

Mr. Lee cannot set budget or compensation levels or define the research that Google will do in China, but he can hire people to work there, the judge said.
