The Wall Street Journal and the New York Times revealed last May that the US Department of Justice, in cooperation with a coalition of prosecutors, are preparing to sue Google for its monopoly and dominance of the digital advertising market.
Google accounts for about 75 percent of the online advertising market.
The move comes after months of investigations by federal antitrust agencies.
The investigations conducted by these agencies are not only related to Google, but also to investigate the lack of dominance of other Internet giants, such as: Amazon, Facebook, and Apple.
Investigations will not include abuse of power by “Google” towards competitors only, but towards users as well.
So far, the nature of the lawsuit or its details have not been disclosed, but it may take years to reach rulings.
This issue may prompt a change in the model in which this large group operates, to divide and separate some of its work from it.
Last year, the ministry and fifty federal prosecutors announced that investigations were being conducted into the possibility that Google had abused power vis-à-vis its competitors and users.
Some accuse large companies of unfair competition and increase economic inequality, while some accuse them of political bias.
Senator Josh Hawley accuses major tech groups, and sees this lawsuit as one of the most important antitrust cases in a generation.
According to a report in the Wall Street Journal last May, 50 prosecutors, led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, have begun preparing for prosecutions since mid-2020.
