Microsoft's Bing uses Google search results—and denies it  —  By now, you may have read Danny Sullivan's recent post: “Google: Bing is Cheating, Copying Our Search Results” and heard Microsoft's response, “We do not copy Google's results.”  However you define copying, the bottom line is, these Bing results came directly from Google.
