The Justice Department and eight state attorneys general on Tuesday brought an antitrust lawsuit against Google, setting up a high-stakes test of the Biden administration’s commitment to dismantling concentration in Silicon Valley. The lawsuit, the second federal case pending against the search giant, alleges that the company’s core ad business should be broken up because Google allegedly used its dominant position in the online ad industry to box out competitors. By neutralizing rivals and forcing publishers to use its products, Google was able to dictate the rules of the marketplace for online ads, the lawsuit says.
Terence Kawaja chimes in on what could be the result if the government were successful in divesting Google’s ad business.
