Google’s Antitrust Rap Sheet Updated – Part 24 Google Unaccountability Series
Submitted by Scott Cleland on Mon, 2013-05-27 14:51
Three new Google antitrust developments in just the last few weeks warrant an update to Google’s ominously-growing Antitrust Rap Sheet; see it here.
It is telling that Google has been found to have broken antitrust laws in ten different ways. In addition, Google is under antitrust investigation in eleven countries and the EU.
Google continues to claim that it has done nothing wrong and that it is the real victim here of a grand anti-Google conspiracy.
However, the evidence speaks volumes that Google is trying to divert attention from its long track record of being a scofflaw.
How can one company have so many serious law enforcement problems occurring repeatedly throughout the company in so many jurisdictions?
It is a logical outgrowth of Google’s leadership long fostering a Google culture of unaccountability.
