Google Plagiarizing

Google was caught plagiarizing a Yahoo page (from what it looks like, at least). While Google wasn’t available for a statement so far, Google’s Matt Cutts posted and apology. A visual history of the case follows below, with screens from Yahoo’s page and Google’s page...

But don’t forget, everyone seems to copy everyone else – not that that’d make it good! – and Matt’s post lists some examples. Also take a look at the “separated at birth” web maps applications (I took the screenshots in March this year).

[Thanks Tony Ruscoe! First two screens by Jeremy Zawodny.]
