Both Democrats and Republicans have expressed issues that only a handful of corporations management the web and expertise at massive. Earlier this summer time, a House antitrust subcommittee grilled executives from Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google. In May, we realized that the Justice Department was contemplating an antitrust investigation into Google, and way back to 2013, Google agreed to a settlement following a FTC antitrust investigation. The European Union has slapped Google with its personal fines and violations.
In a press release, Google spokesperson Jose Castaneda stated:
“Google’s services help people every day, create more choice for consumers, and support thousands of jobs and small businesses across the country. We continue to work constructively with regulators, including attorneys general, in answering questions about our business and the dynamic technology sector.”
While Congress appears dedicated to reigning in large tech, it seems uncertain of precisely how to take action. It’s unclear why the attorneys basic are investigating Google particularly, or if they will examine Amazon, Apple or Facebook, too. We’ll have to attend for extra particulars, anticipated on September ninth.
