Google may claim that the search results is their own property and they can provide whatever they feel like.
I must admit that this has always puzzled me too. I am not G's greatest fan but I have always wondered why they are not allowed to do what they want with their own results?
Could it not be argued that each tweak of the algorithm could be classed as manipulating the results?
