SHAFAQNA- The US justice department filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google on Tuesday. “Two decades ago, Google became the darling of Silicon Valley as a scrappy startup with an innovative way to search the emerging internet. That Google is long gone,” the suit alleged.
Today Google is a “monopoly gatekeeper for the internet” that has used “pernicious” anti-competitive tactics to maintain and extend its monopolies. The long-awaited case, filed in Washington DC, alleges that Google unfairly acts as a gatekeeper to the web through a series of business agreements that effectively lock out competition, The Guardian reported.
