The $1 billion lawsuit alleges that Google copied LimitNone's “gMove” e-mail and calendar migration tool and then used the design to augment Google Apps. “Google claims its core philosophy is 'Don't be evil' but, simply put, they invited us to work with them, to trust them -- and then stole our technology,” said LimitNone's CEO, Ray Glassmann, in a prepared statement.

The lawsuit over the e-mail tool was filed on LimitNone's behalf by Kelley Drye & Warren LLP, a commercial litigation group which has also brought legal challenges against Google over its online advertising.

Seeking up to $950 million in compensation for lost revenue, the lawsuit also alleges that Google violated Illinois' consumer fraud laws in producing “Google Email Uploader.”
