Ask The FTC To File Google Antitrust Suit

It’s time the Federal Trade Commission pulled the trigger on its antitrust investigation against Google. The internet giant’s anti-competitive practices -- including biasing search results in favor of its own services, withholding fair licenses for key patented technology, and demanding Google products be used on Android phones -- must be stopped. Ask FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz and Commissioners Rosch, Ramirez, Brill and Ohlhausen to accept the staff report and approve an antitrust suit against Google.

The FTC’s role in keeping Google’s abuses in check is essential.  The Commission owes the public a prosecution of Google in order to reveal the evidence it has collected and the impact of one company cornering the online market for information. The Commissioners must not falter. They should accept the staff’s recommendation, file a formal antitrust complaint against Google and go to trial in Federal District Court in Washington. The Internet is too important to allow an unregulated monopolist to dominate it.
