United States sues Google for breach of competition rules

The US Department of Justice has filed a lawsuit against Google for violating competition rules, US media reports. The Ministry of Justice considers that Google has acted as a disincentive to competition in order to maintain its monopoly on the search engine market and advertising there.

Eleven Republican state justice ministers support the government in the lawsuit, CNBC reports.

It was over a year ago that the US Department of Justice launched competition investigations into four major technology companies: Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google.

The lawsuit is the biggest competition case in a long time, comparable to the lawsuit against Microsoft in 1998.

Microsoft, like Google, was considered to be in breach of US competition law and to use its monopoly position to make fair competition impossible. Microsoft was forced when the verdict fell to divide the company, something that has been considered to pave the way for the great development of the Internet thereafter.
