US Sues Google on Search and Digital Ad

Google Launches AI Center in Accra, Hiring Many Positions – Tekedia

The U.S. has sued Google, setting up a battle on the future of search and digital advertising.

The Justice Department has sued Google for allegedly breaking antitrust laws as it undercut competitors to maintain its status as gatekeeper for internet search and advertising. The department says the Alphabet-owned company, which controls at least 80% of search, pays “mobile-phone manufacturers, carriers and browsers, like Apple Inc.’s Safari, to maintain Google as their preset, default search engine,” according to The Wall Street Journal. The suit is the biggest U.S. challenge to a tech company over its dominance in two decades.
