The Sanyuan report found that the Sogou cell phone input method launched by Sogou company in December 2015 provided the search candidate service. The search candidates were placed above the input candidates of the input interface, and the user clicked the search candidate to jump directly into the search dog's search results page. Sanyuan claimed that Sogou company constituted unfair competition, and the economic losses required for compensation were more than 100 million yuan. And so on.
Sogou argues that its search candidates only appear in the browser environment. The combination of input method and search engine belongs to technological innovation and has respected users'right to know and choose.
