French software engineer Jose Montet is pictured in Fort-de-France on December 29, 2012. Montet has demanded €960million in damages from Paypal after accusing it of stealing his idea for a secure online payment system. José Montet lodged his claim with the Tribunal de Grande Instance in Paris, saying that Paypal’s success – and its €1.5billion buyout by eBay in 2002 – was based on his copyrighted system.
