Submission + - Google may face legal action over Chinese IME tool

Turtlewind writes: "Google's Chinese subsidiary ran into more trouble this week as the company's new pinyin input method editor (IME) (link in Chinese), which helps users to enter Chinese characters, was accused of "sharing striking similarities" with a similar service launched by rival Sogou last June. Soon after the software was made available Chinese bloggers discovered that a number of errors in Sogou's tool were replicated in Google's program, and Sogou is considering legal action."

Beware of the Turing Tar-pit in which everything is possible but nothing of interest is easy.
