CSHARP123 writes: The Department of Justice launched an investigation into the "No Poaching" agreement between Apple and Google in 2010, but details of the case were only made public for the first time yesterday. TechCrunch was the first to sift through the documents, and has uncovered some ostensibly incriminating evidence against not only Google and Apple, but Pixar, Lucasfilm, Adobe, Intel, and Intuit, as well. According to the filings from the US District Court for the Northern District of California in San Jose, these companies did indeed enter "no poach" agreements with each other, and agreed to refrain soliciting employees. The documents also indicate that they collectively sought to limit their employees' power to negotiate for higher salaries.
