Tuesday, 20. October 2020 16:26

United States Department of Justice sued Google LLC on Tuesday, alleging it broke antitrust laws. Specifically, it claimed the company broke the Sherman Act, maintaining monopolies in "general search services, search advertising, and general search text advertising through "anticompetitive and exclusionary practices."

Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen stated that Google "has maintained monopoly power through exclusionary practices that are harmful to competition" and warned that "we could lose the next wave of innovation" if the government does not enforce antitrust laws.
