Krissy Bentley Make-Up Ethical Analysis 29 November 2011 The Microsoft-Bing Dilemma Summary: When you search on Bing, does it just copy the results? Is Bing, the newer, supposedly refined and overall better search engine violating intellectual copyright laws? Google thinks so. They’re attempting to sue Microsoft for theft of intellectual property. My ethical Analysis: First off, really? I think this is a ridiculous claim on the part of Google for several reasons: Number one- I really don’t think that they are seeing a huge loss in searches because of Bing. Google is way more popular, has been around longer, and frankly it’s better. I never use Bing. It’s frustrating and never brings up what I’m actually looking for. More than anything, it’s just another search engine. In addition, let’s define a “search engine.” Basically, we’re talking about a program that compiles all the information on the internet into a few top websites based on your search. Who cares

where it came from? That’s the point of a search engine! Based on Bing’s research, those top websites that they show on their screen are the big websites no matter what. Google doesn’t own those websites. They are big websites and are featured as such on any search engine that you look at. That’s another thing- Why Microsoft? Why Bing? Ask.com has been around longer, and I can say for a fact that their search results when I happen to use it are almost identical to Google’s. I honestly think that the fact that Microsoft is a huge company with lots of cash is making Google drool thinking about all the money they can get out of a lawsuit with them as opposed to a smaller company that does the same thing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
