Not sure about you, but if one of my competitors took all of the hard work that I have put in to my site and essentially copied the results without doing any of the work, and I had inescapable evidence of this, I would do the same thing that Google did.
And yet Google somehow justifies the scrape jobs they do on 3rd party review websites. And then they suggest only way to opt out of having your content used against you in their reviews section is to opt out of ranking in the regular search results as well.
It seems Google really likes Google's content, even if Google's content is 100% reliant on 3rd parties. But if anyone other than Google acts like Google then there should be a public relations smear campaign in the media.
Good work Google!
