Google is that tech giant company which is facing related antitrust controversies at a more significant level. Google had been penalized for breaking antitrust laws in the USA and Europe, but now reports show that it might face another probe. More than half of state attorney generals have decided to establish a new investigation on Google over antitrust violations. The report shows that research is going to announce nearly on September 9 in which authorities will be checking the search engine giant for breaking antitrust laws.
However, it’s not clear whether this probe is going to be applied to other tech giant companies like Facebook, Amazon, or not. So far, big tech companies have faced a considerable amount of problems when it comes to data protection or content creation. Google got penalized in Europe for not following GDPR norms, and now a similar thing is happening in the US too. Tech giant companies like Facebook, Amazon, and Google went through some of their worst times. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) already started a probe on Facebook in July about which the tech giant mentioned previously.
State authorities believe that big corporations from silicon valley are using their dominant position to maintain their monopoly. Some reports show that the government is planning to create more strict laws about antitrust and related issues. Senate is trying to put “Monopolization deterrence act” under which big firms might have to pay 15 percent of the total revenues to the US government. This law will be applied to those companies which break any antitrust laws, and big corporations are already worried about it. Google spokesperson said the tech company’s services help people to discover new things, products, and they will continue to work with regulators on these issues.
