Morse and Music

A website that offers popular music news, videos and lyrics claims that Google is using its lyrics without permission, and says it used Morse code to prove it! According to Rolling Stone, lyrics site genius.com used a series of "curly" and "straight" apostrophes in its presentation of various song lyrics which, when converted to the dits and dahs of Morse code, spelled out "red-handed." The article said the site found more than 100 instances of its lyrics presentations on Google over the past three years. Google denies sourcing lyrics from Genius for its search results.
