Google Accused of Stealing "Click to Call" Trade Secrets

Technology communications company VoIP Inc. sued Google Inc. in New York Supreme Court, accusing the Internet giant of stealing its trade secrets related to online voice technology. The litigation stems from a September 2005 contract in which, according to the complaint, VoIP's Los Angeles-based subsidiary, VoiceOne Communications Corp, agreed to provide Google with its patented "Click to Call" technology that allows Internet users to place a call to advertisers or merchants simply by clicking a link on a website.
