Google hit by antitrust lawsuit from nearly 40 states over alleged search monopoly

A bipartisan coalition of 38 states and territories on Thursday filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google, alleging the tech giant holds a monopoly in general search, the heart of its consumer tech business. The complaint is the third antitrust suit filed against the Silicon Valley giant in a matter of weeks, escalating Google's battle with state and federal prosecutors over the company's dominance.

The lawsuit alleges the tech giant harmed competitors with its presentation of search results, favoring its own services over those of rivals. The complaint also claims Google asserted its dominance to become the default search engine in not only web browsers and smartphones, but also newer technologies like smart speakers and connected cars, through the company's voice assistant feature.

i dont see how this behavior of googs is any different than the monopoly the box stores have
ridden thru this pandemic event.
all these box and tek corps want is more money for them personally and pay NO TAX on any of it.

taxes are for you dumb fuckers who use roads in the 'us' cuz you dont have 10 or 50 yachts.
Who are these..flag-sucking halfwits fleeced fooled by stupid little rich kids, They speak
for all that is cruel stupid, They are racists hate mongers I piss down the throats of
these Nazis Im too old to worry whether they like it, Fuck them.
HST.
