Barbara Darrow, EMC, Google, Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, Noncompete agreements
EMC isn’t taking the defection of David Donatelli to Hewlett Packard lying down. In fact it’s suing to put the kibosh on the move and a Masschusetts (homer!) judge has granted a preliminary injunction in the matter. A colleague here at TechTarget (thanks Jo) says EMC is one of the few companies that have successfully enforced notoriously hard-to-enforce noncompete agreements in the past so this could get juicy–perhaps as much so as the Microsoft-Google kerfuffle over Kai-Fu Lee.
