Google’s Dominance

The  DOJ accuses Google of being “a monopoly gatekeeper for the internet” engaging in “anticompetitive tactics to maintain and extend its monopolies”.

At the center of the case is Google’s well-known practice of paying large amounts of money to device manufacturers, wireless carriers and browser developers to make sure Google is the default search engine on devices and within browsers.

According to the DOJ’s findings, such agreements cover almost 60 percent of all search queries in the United States, with a large part of the remaining share funneled through Google’s own properties (e.g. its Chrome browser and Google devices).
