Google "What is interesting is that you can use the new system to play around and notice that Microsoft doesn't always seem to take down from its search engine, Bing, the same links that it orders Google to takedown." Funny, but since Microsoft outsources their takedown requests to a different company, most likely just a case of the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing.

Er, just to let you know, I revised my position after the commenter above informed me that MS was issuing these notices for MS software. This wasn't made entirely clear by the article.

That said, your argument did pass through my mind, but I don't know how much market share they could gain by allowing Bing to index MS copies.

Well it appears you and I were typing at about the same time; your follow up was posted four minutes after mine. My apologies, I was simply offering an explanation as you requested.
