There's no end to this

Technically, anything that Google tries to answer immediately may be seen as unfair competition. They do unit conversion? That's unfair to unit conversion sites. They give dictionary definitions? Unfair to dictionary sites. Lyrics? Same. And so on...

The fact there are so many examples only illustrates how powerful Google is, just by being the first entity people will query about anything.
