Breaking: Yelp issues statement in response to state AGs' lawsuit against Google:— Chris O'Brien (@obrien) December 17, 2020
Another lawsuit, this one filed by 38 states that didn't participate in yesterday's, focused on how Google put its own products & answers above competitors in its results: https://t.co/WBSJ6OIpHe— Rand Fishkin (@randfish) December 17, 2020
I'd be pretty nervous if I were them. pic.twitter.com/hSVozFzLzZ
Apple’s anti trust exposure is pretty narrow relative to Facebook and Google. Ending the Google payment for Safari traffic will actually hurt Apple shareholders more than breaking off Youtube and Display ads will hurt Alphabet or separating IG and WhatsApp will hurt FB investors— Jonah Stein (@Jonahstein) December 17, 2020
You guys that's an antitrust wrap for the year. No more tech lawsuits expected this year.— CeciliaKang (@ceciliakang) December 17, 2020
In 2021, US/states v. Google and Facebook will occupy a lot of firepower and interest. Please follow @daiwaka @dmccabe @MikeIsaac and me for these epic battleshttps://t.co/dtdvVIUxRI
Nice explainer in the NYT on the alleged conspiracy between Google and Facebook, spelled out in new 10 State AG complaint, to restrict competition for publishers and thereby permit Google to overcharge publishers for the ads they showed.— Hal Singer (@HalSinger) December 17, 2020
Whoa if true.https://t.co/j9i3KIzq02 pic.twitter.com/Sj48ZHSLWE
??? After @TXAG announced their anti-trust lawsuit yesterday, nearly 40 states are suing @Google. Long overdue after years of predatory practices that push out competitors, compromise privacy, & evade accountability for harm done to Black communities.https://t.co/PviMSTuGYk— ColorOfChange (@ColorOfChange) December 18, 2020
So, to review this week in Google.— Mark Bergen (@mhbergen) December 17, 2020
Monday: outage across many major products.
Tuesday: Gmail goes berserk.
Wed: letter sent from staff researchers demanding VP is reassigned; 10 states sue.
Thursday: 38 AGs sue.
Company brought in (based on analyst forecasts) $2.1bn.
The states behind today’s lawsuit are reviewing the complaint filed yesterday by Texas, according to a person familiar with the matter, but no decision has been made about whether to join that case.— Brian Fung (@b_fung) December 17, 2020
Para 141 of Texas AG filing against Google & Facebook is incredible: Facebook gave Google access to people's end-to-end encrypted WhatsApp messages, photos, videos, and audio files.— Johnny Ryan (@johnnyryan) December 17, 2020
I want to see the text of that deal. Was it in US only, or EU too? https://t.co/RZle0sjyuA pic.twitter.com/ObymSe06ly
As you hear Google defend itself today against antitrust charges by claiming that it faces stiff competition in search from *checks notes* Expedia and TripAdvisor, it's instructive to recall the monopolists' playbook that Peter Thiel laid out back in 2014. https://t.co/16QzZHH0OB pic.twitter.com/ZCfDU2yaN8— Will Oremus (@WillOremus) December 17, 2020
When I saw the Whatsapp/Google part in the Texas antitrust complaint, I thought ok this is about the backup stuff.— Wolfie Christl (@WolfieChristl) December 18, 2020
I still assume it's not a major antitrust issue, but G indexing Whatsapp attachments or even running face recognition is certainly troublinghttps://t.co/xtWRqtB4DZ pic.twitter.com/UTBDLqbIcQ
Here is an excellent article from the NY Times Dealbook about all of the recent antitrust happenings related to the business world. When they get to the section on the NCAA, you may recognize the names of one of the people quoted.https://t.co/M9sjfjZ6Xn— Marc Edelman (@MarcEdelman) December 17, 2020
Google is facing a new antitrust suit, which notes how Google downplayed content from sites like Yelp in favor of "its own competing reviews or services." Our paper comparing Google and Yelp restaurant ratings (w/ @bhecht) is very relevant here! [1/3] https://t.co/XLxOkf0xiB— Hanlin Li (@hanlinliii) December 18, 2020
38 attorneys general are challenging Google's search dominance — including how it used its data on user web activity to benefit its ad business, which yielded over $130 billion last year.— NPR (@NPR) December 17, 2020
