US sues Google in huge antitrust battle
The US sued Google yesterday claiming it illegally using its market muscle to hobble rivals in the biggest challenge to the power and influence of Big Tech in decades.
The Justice Department lawsuit will take years to resolve and may not ever get a government result. The US sued Microsoft for anti-competitive practices in 1998 and Vole was largely unchanged.
The federal government's complaint against Alphabet claims Google acted unlawfully to maintain its position in search and search advertising on the internet, was joined by 11 states. "Absent a court order, Google will continue executing its anticompetitive strategy, crippling the competitive process, reducing consumer choice, and stifling innovation", the lawsuit states.
