Google ‘monopoly gatekeeper’ for internet: Key takeaways from US antitrust lawsuit

“The Google of today is a monopoly gatekeeper for the internet,” said the United States government, in its antitrust lawsuit against the technology giant filed on Tuesday, beginning perhaps the biggest monopoly case of this century. The lawsuit accuses Google, with a market valuation of $1 trillion (a figure that dwarves the economies of many countries), of using anticompetitive tactics to maintain and extend its monopoly. The US Department of Justice (DoJ) and eleven states (all run by Republic...

Google calls DOJ’s antitrust lawsuit “deeply flawed” in GIF-laden blog response

Google was clearly anticipating today’s U.S. Department of Justice antitrust complaint filing – the company posted an extensive rebuttal of the lawsuit to its Keyword company blog. The post, penned by SVP of Global Affairs and Google Chief Legal Officer Kent Walker, suggests that the DOJ’s case is “deeply flawed” and “would do nothing to help consumers,” before going into a platform-by-platform description of why it thinks its position in the market isn’t representative of unfair market domin...

Google fires back at DOJ antitrust lawsuit, saying the 'deeply flawed' suit would force Americans to use worse search features and pay more for their phones

Google's Kent Walker published a blog post defending the tech giant on Tuesday. Aaron Bernstein/Reuters Google fired back against an antitrust lawsuit filed by the US Department of Justice in a blog post on Tuesday.  "This lawsuit would do nothing to help consumers," Google chief legal officer Kent Walker wrote.

A deeply flawed lawsuit that would do nothing to help consumers

Google Search has put the world’s information at the fingertips of over a billion people. Our engineers work to offer the best search engine possible, constantly improving and fine-tuning it. We think that’s why a wide cross-section of Americans value and often love our free products. Today’s lawsuit by the Department of Justice is deeply flawed. People use Google because they choose to, not because they're forced to, or because they can't find alternatives. This lawsuit would do nothing to help...

Justice Thomas Writes a Misguided Anti-Section 230 Statement “Without the Benefit of Briefing”–Enigma v. Malwarebytes

Last year, the Ninth Circuit ruled that a plaintiff could plead around Section 230(c)(2)(B), the safe harbor for providing filtering instructions, by claiming that the filtering was motivated by anticompetitive animus. Last week, the Supreme Court denied certiorari. This isn’t surprising–the Supreme Court takes a low percentage of cases–but it’s too bad the Ninth Circuit ruling won’t be corrected. Alongside the cert denial, Justice Thomas added a statement railing against Section 230 (starting...
