We love a good corporate feud, especially when boardroom nastiness and pettiness are revealed. Thus, according to Web site DailyFinance.com, Microsoft has a big lobbying firm in Washington, DC, called the Law Media Group, which conducts a high-level, hush-hush "screw Google" meeting every week.
DailyFinance writer Sam Gustin reports an unnamed source telling him, "Law Media Group has several people who work full-time on Google-bashing. Everybody knows Microsoft is trying to throw roadblocks at Google and knock them off their game. Microsoft is trying to harm Google in the regulatory, legal, and litigation arenas because they're having problems with Google in the competitive marketplace."
