How Competition Can Change Your Startup DNA

Not a day goes by, without an article about how Google China is getting pounced by Baidu, Sohu, or Sina, the top portal in China. Competition can change your company DNA. I read a recent article that Google China had "borrowed" the Chinese character database of a rival search engine named Sohu when it recently launched Google Chinese search.. It's amazing, because the database contained names of employees of Sohu and the code monkeys at Google apparently forgot to delete them before launch. Did you say ... Snafu? Plagiarism is a pretty serious crime in academic circles and it's amazing how competition can change your startup DNA.
