Punishing Google’s success

by Walter Olson on December 21, 2011

Rivals are pushing for the Federal Trade Commission to take more aggressive antitrust action against the search company, and have now enlisted Sens. Herb Kohl (D-Wisc.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) in their cause. [Geoffrey Manne, Jim Miller & Dan Oliver/NRO, Coyote]

I think they are getting punished for their success. If Google favors Google you either care or you don’t care. If you care, check out Yahoo or Bing. If you don’t care then.. you don’t care.

As with most services, consumers vote with their feet.

Herb is retiring, hopefully this stupidity.

If Google were hobbling competition with dubious software patent lawsuits, I would favor throwing the anti-trust book at them. But they have usually been on the side of openness and innovation.
