    I agree that it looks like Google is copying Bing in some ways, but are they really copying Bing’s ideas or are they just pursuing similar user experience research? It would be interesting to see what Google and Microsoft have to say about proposed changes in software method patents. Are their comments to the government (if they have made any) publicly available?

    BING has done their share of directly copying Google. I don’t think Ballmer can be too assertive of what BING has developed yet. They are still just trying to catch up.

    I hope they make a good run at it though. The competition is good.
