“What’s Sauce for the Goose . . .”

Is it my imagination, or did Google’s home search page just become a Bing look-alike?

The latter — Microsoft’s entrant in the all-important “search category” — has famously showcased spectacular natural settings and other arresting scenery on its home page.

And now Google does, too.

My copyright law is pretty rusty, but it’s hard to see how a company (Microsoft) that has made a (very nice) living “lifting” its competitors’ best features and integrating them into its own has much ground to complain, legal or otherwise, about what Google is doing.
