Google Condemns Microsoft Proposal to Acquire Yahoo!
Google, the world’s largest Internet search system, said on Monday that the possible acquisition of Yahoo!, which owns the globe’s leading portal yahoo.com, by Microsoft Corp. threatens further development of the Internet. Google believes that if Microsoft imposes the same business practices in the Internet, as it has on the software market, the openness and innovation of the Internet will be compromised.
Google claims that the possible acquisition of Yahoo! by Microsoft is more than a financial transaction, when one company takes over another. The company, which controls a large portion of Internet advertising, claims that the potential merge between the most successful Internet portal and the most influential maker of software threatens “the underlying principles of the Internet: openness and innovation”.
