Despite this statement we reported yesterday that was issued by Nelson Mattos, Google’s Product & Engineering VP for Emerging Markets, does Mocality have a legal basis to sue?
“We were mortified to learn that a team of people working on a Google project improperly used Mocality’s data and misrepresented our relationship with Mocality to encourage customers to create new websites. We’ve already unreservedly apologised to Mocality. We’re still investigating exactly how this happened, and as soon as we have all the facts, we’ll be taking the appropriate action with the people involved.”
Can Mocality sue Google for damaging their business? Evidence shows the Google has tried to deceive and trick customers. This is identity theft at corporate level. If you read the whole episode, Google has committed a crime and Mocality must seek legal advice to begin a proceeding.
Tekedia thinks that Google should be sued for $10m to cover the corporate calamities their actions have caused Mocality. Mocality, retain a lawyer in U.S. and begin this process. Do not bother in Kenya as Google will influence it.
