Sohu didn't accept Google's apologies.
Google is now becoming into Guge if they don't change their China strategy.

I am researching the internet for years. IME also my field. I do not think Sogou did a innovate design. My works will be much more better.

Although Google China get some troubles; according to China Law, Google China have rights to copy Sogou IME when Google IME still in Labs, and need not any permit from Sogou. Copy not a mistake, but say sorry is silly.

I very disappointed for Google China and its China CEO. Maybe Kaifu Lee is a great teacher, but he is a fuck bad businessman. All business have their rules sturcture, including Law.

Now, I still can not believe that Google say apologize. So another possiablity is that all only a drama, both Google China and Sogou can become more famous and advertisment cost free. Maybe Sogou already sold their some tech to Google China.

And, I should say it again, if is not a drama, Kaifu Lee really stupid, he is hurting Google China and hurting the feeling of China Gfans.

I am tired of talking about Google China. Sorry.

I don't understand the problem. Google has been copying people's content for years. They call their duplicate content "search results" and "cache data".

An update from China Daily --

<<Google may soon find itself in a legal soup in China as top managers from yesterday said the US Internet giant's Chinese input method violated its patent rights, for which it can be sued.

"Google did not just steal the product dictionary, it violated the intellectual property rights of the revolutionary inventions used in our input method product," said Charles Zhang, CEO of, a NASDAQ-listed Chinese portal.

"It's a disgrace for a US company which takes pride in its respect for intellectual property rights. We will launch a lawsuit against them anytime," Zhang said.>>

[Thanks Manoj!]
