Microsoft’s search engine Bing has been accused of copying the search results of search engine giant Google. Microsoft has denied the allegations and has stated that it has simply been using data gathered by Internet explorer 8 based on how users used the Internet to refine it’s own search engine.
Google however had built a sting operation by using there own search engine results to see if they would appear in Bing and there are sure enough examples to be found. But whether this proves anything is yet to be seen. Then there is also the matter of whether or not what it proves really is malpractice or not. Only time will tell which of these corporate giants is right.
