Lyrics and the Blame Game

A whole lot of people don't like Google. Those people do generally praise Apple and see the worst in Google. The latest example is Genius claiming Goolge "stole" their lyrics.

K.Q. Dreger sums his thoughts up

But ultimately, this points back to Google’s enormous control over the traffic, and often financial wellbeing, of sites whose content it decides to scrape and surface via Knowledge Panels or Featured Snippets.

However, Google licenses the lyrics already so they can't be stolen in the legal sense. People don't click through to websites because the Featured Snippets load faster and better than the over bloated websites that hosts the info.

Better page loading isen;'t huge control, just better strategy.
