A New Twist on “Non-Competes”

Rob Radcliff reports on the anti-trust investigation of technology companies (e.g., Google, IBM) that allegedly have agreed that there will not be mobility of certain “geek” employees from one tech company to another. In other words, allegedly these companies have agreed that if you will stay away from my talent, I will stay away from yours. The Justice Department is investigating. Rob, with tongue-in-cheek, styled his blog yesterday about this as “how to enforce a non-compete without a non-compete.”
