Oct 21, 2020 The Justice Department filed a landmark antitrust lawsuit against Google yesterday over the company’s anticompetitive practices, specifically around search. The Justice Department and 11 states charged Google with maintaining an illegal monopoly on online search through business deals and agreements that lock out competitors, like paying Apple billions of dollars to make Google the default search engine for iPhones, and other deals with browser makers. It’s the most significant case against a Big Tech company in more than 20 years, since the one against Microsoft in 1998.
