About this Deal
The US Department of Justice on Tuesday filed a landmark lawsuit against Google that accuses the tech giant of illegally holding monopolies in search and search advertising, the culmination of a months-long investigation into alleged anticompetitive practices at the search giant.
The federal government alleges Google violated antitrust laws to act as a "gatekeeper" to the internet. The complaint says the tech giant unlawfully blocked out competitors by reaching deals with phone makers including Apple and Samsung to be the preset, default search engine on devices. Google also abused the dominance of its Android operating system to strong arm manufacturers to preload Google's apps onto phones, the lawsuit alleges.
