Google catches Bing copying search results

Cheating if you ask me. The reason I use Google to search is because their results are relevant and get me where I need to go, with a few -filters and quotations here and there, granted, but better than any other engine I've tried to date.

Pretty convincing evidence as well...

I read Microsoft's blog post, and they pretty much (though indirectly) admitted they did "copy" Google.

This is mostly spelled correctly, but incoherent nonetheless.
Suck my google?
Is this real Aussie slang, or did you just make that up?

Nothing to do with Aussie slang 'mate'... It was an ill-fated reply to kamz999. Though it was rudely intercepted by that charming chunk of charitable conversation by the lovely Cota.

Are you the internet police? >:3

Actually, i probably should have quoted you, so that you can read your quote's within a quote. Yo dawg, how's internet policing going?

Microsoft are such douche bags. Remember when they sued some guy for having a website named MikeRoweSoft.com? I guess being similar isn't ok but blatant copying is! F U Microsoft! I'm putting a chip in my Xbox360, that will calm me down.

it's the final proof that Microsoft is a consolidated company !More yoopies, no engineers and lots and lots of lawyers.(sadly, Sony corp is heading the same way...no more good ideas...)

I don't know about this but Google will be the next Microsoft. With its finger in every pie. Mark my words, mortals.
 
I am glad there is competition between these companies. I certainly do not want only one source for my searching ability. If you think about it, Google holds significant power on how it tailors search results. I might go as far to say, if they have tailored these results, how many other results are we unaware of.I am definitely not a fan of some of Microsoft's accomplishments but they have developed some GREAT pieces of software. They also have come up with a platform that most of the things we take for granted run on (like Crysis 2).

I believe Google. They created a very nice test case to determine whether Bing is 'sucking' results off Google. Based on the setup and the outcome, Bing does not seem to be truly searching the internet. They're searching other search engines. Might as well cut out the middleman and just use Google.

Many, if not most retail operations, price shop the competition, then bring their prices into line with those competitors.

I suppose that Bing, "shopping" their competition is understandable.

Whether they should be able to use the results could be the subject perhaps, of a college level semester in Ethics.

With that being said, let me apply, "Juvenile Delinquent Torrent Logic", to the issue.

Since Google still has the original "copy" of the search results, therefore "nothing has been stolen"! So therefore, Bing should be able to "download" all of Google's search results they choose to.

So now, why don't cha all go back to torrenting copyrighted programs, games, movies, and music, free of charge, and leave Google and Bing alone to fight it out amongst themselves.
