 The trump administration will formally file an antitrust lawsuit against Google as soon as next week


According to fortune.com, the antitrust lawsuit against Google may become the largest antitrust lawsuit in the United States since the Microsoft antitrust case 20 years ago. According to the report, US Attorney General Barr led the anti-monopoly investigation against domestic technology giants, after US President trump was very dissatisfied with the Internet opinion dominated by Silicon Valley technology enterprises. Google browser is the most profitable Internet product in history, but now it brings big trouble to Google. The U.S. Department of justice has been investigating Googles use of browsers to collect user data to facilitate the promotion of its own products and suppress competitive products. Data shows that Google browser has occupied nearly 90% of the search engine market in the United States, and it can generate 100 billion US dollars of high profits for Google every year.

According to the report, Google browser is the cornerstone of Googles e-mail business, online video business, mobile phone software business, map business and cloud computing business. U.S. Department of justice officials have informed Google representatives that their focus is on Googles search orientation: when users use the browser to search for information or products, search results will give priority to Googles own products, including business services, travel booking and regional business lists. In 2018, Wall Street investment bank Goldman Sachs paid Apple $9 billion to help its products appear in Apples Safari browser and other apple platforms. A private search engine developer complained to the justice department that such behavior by large technology companies made it almost impossible for other search platforms to compete. Meanwhile, Googles Android system has also been accused of forcing mobile phone manufacturers to pre install several Google software. Earlier, the European Union has imposed billions of Euro fines on Google for monopolistic behavior and data privacy issues. Source: Global Times - global network editor: Zhang Mei_ NF2100
