I’m not aware that Google plagiarized anyone.

You are right, Google is not plagiarizing. Taking without consent and taking without crediting, with or without taking without consent, are not the same thing. But I’d say they’re different types of taking (theft) and not one taking without permission and one burning without permission, as you suggest. Having had both done to me I get confused by the same feeling of loss.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
