FTC clears Google in antitrust case
- USA: Saturday, January 05 - 2013 at 05:15
The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has said that Google Inc. had not violated antitrust or anti-competition laws in the way it arranges its search results, a major victory for the internet giant after a nearly two-year investigation, the New York Times has reported. The five members of the FTC voted unanimously to close the investigation without bringing charges. "While not everything Google did was beneficial, on balance we did not believe that the evidence supported an FTC challenge to this aspect of Google's business under American law," said Jon Leibowitz, chairman of the FTC.
