Report: FTC Finally Getting Around to That Google Antitrust Thing

Looks like the massive increase in Google’s federal lobbying spend hasn’t done much to shield the company from mounting regulatory scrutiny. Beltway sources tell Reuters that the Federal Trade Commission is seriously considering filing antitrust charges against the search behemoth. Evidently, four of the FTC’s five commissioners think Google may have used its dominance of the search market to harm rivals. The agency is expected to decide whether or not to proceed with charges before the end of the year. In response, a Google spokesperson told AllThingD: “We are happy to answer any questions that regulators have about our business.”
