I race cars as well as bikes, and there is a certain etiquette to that kind of pass. If at the entry you are clearly visible to the other rider AND you have solid position (usually takes at least 3/4 bike overlap, or your front wheel is overlapping his), then you are entitled to the inside line, and the outside person must adjust slightly. However, cars have rear view mirrors to help prevent collisions. From the sound of it, you are both at fault. You took a dangerous position and the other rider didn't yield properly (maybe he couldn't have done so if other people were outside of him?). I've seen this all the time in auto racing.
