Honestly, who was stupid enough to do this? Somebody at Microsoft nicked code from a Canadian company called Plurk, which not only has an awful name but also makes a (yuck) microblogging application.
Seriously, though, we feel for Plurk, and Microsoft has admitted to being in the wrong here. But who on Planet Redmond did this? We doubt it was on executive orders or anything like that. Still, somebody somewhere should have caught the stolen code (the theft wasn't subtle), and, more importantly, somebody else shouldn't have stolen it in the first place. Unemployment office, get ready for another application or two (or more).
