Point of note

Point of note: it's not just Google's search results that Bing is "borrowing". The way MS describes what's going on, the toolbar will forward data from any search performed by the user.

For those looking to argue the point, you have to answer the following question first: Did (or did not) Bing "borrow" search data? Call it silly, call it nitpicking, I don't want to know what label you want to hang on the act.

In the end, they were caught doing something that equates to copying someone else's homework. They can't go to jail for it but I think the nun at the front of the class (the one with the firm grip on the yard stick) might ask 'em to hold out their hands...
