Google is receiving severe backlash from various sources for misuse of its dominant position in the search market

Google is receiving severe backlash from various sources for misuse of its dominant position in the search market

Recently, Google was served notice about a lawsuit against it by the DOJ. According to the reports, there is an allegation that the company is misusing its dominant position to harm its customers as well as competitors. Eleven states joined DOJ in the anti-trust lawsuit for unlawful maintenance of a monopoly in the general search advertising and search services. The events leading up to the lawsuit was triggered by the report submitted by US House representatives. The probe for the reports began in July 2019, and few companies like Apple, Facebook, Amazon, and Google were investigated for bipartisan. The companies were put under the radar for being big spenders and steamrolling competition by either pushing vendors to avoid having any kind of relationship with the competitors or buying them out completely.

Over the past few years, the company had to face multiple run-ins with the CCI for misusing its dominant position. Last year, India’s anti-trust body had also held the search giant guilty of misusing its dominant positions in the Indian mobile android market. Unfair conditions were being imposed by Google on device manufacturers to prevent them from making use of other OS. Google challenged the CCI findings on various forums like the Supreme Court and National Company Law Appellate Tribunal.
