Tonight CNBC reports that an continuous antitrust examination of Google carried out by 50 lawyers general is broadening. While it began by looking into Google’s marketing company, it has obviously, as expected, expanded its scope to include search and the Android platform. Throughout the years Google has reached into more services– next up: monitoring– and platforms with significantly deep ties to one another, and as the examination worries making use of customer data, it seems apparent that it will reach every part of the business ultimately. The 48 state AGs, as well as two representing Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico, did not comment on the current
report, while Google said in a September post that it would cooperate with examinations.
