Google makes money from ads... thats all..
their products are completely free
unlike microsoft that makes money from Windows, Office, and some more stupid stuff..

Here in Brazil, the law says that any computer system made inside the corporation is owned by the corporation, even if you did it by yourself.
Thinking that way, orkut.com service was made in 20% time that Google gives to their employers.
Think how many new Google products we have right now?
I don't think they will pay Orkut for this.
