The US Department of Justice filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google

The United States of America filed a lawsuit against Google, accusing monopolism, the Associated Press reports, citing sources.

This morning, the Department of Justice and 11 states filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google for creating an illegal monopoly and monopoly on advertising in search. We continue to monitor the competitive practices of market-leading online platforms and, if necessary, we will respond to them,” First Deputy Justice Minister Jeff Rosen told reporters.

As noted by the media, the Ministry of Justice accused Google of abusing “its dominance in the field of online search” to destroy competition. Thus, according to the Department, the Corporation caused harm to users.

According to the Associated Press, lawsuits may be filed against other major companies, including Apple, Microsoft, and Facebook.

Google, founded in January 1996, now controls about 90% of Internet searches worldwide. The Corporation has been repeatedly accused of suppressing competition: Donald Trump previously stated that it manipulated the US presidential election in 2016, adding millions of votes to his rival Hillary Clinton.
