U.S. targets Google’s online ad business monopoly in latest Big Tech lawsuit.

The U.S. Justice Department has filed a lawsuit against Alphabet Inc’s Google, alleging that the tech giant has abused its power as an online advertising monopoly and is seeking to force it to divest its ad manager suite.

The lawsuit alleges that Google’s domination of the online advertising market harms competition and stifles innovation in the industry. The government contends that its ad manager suite, which generated about 12 per cent of Google’s revenues in 2021, gives the company an unfair advantage by controlling where and how ads appear across its products.

Microsoft is also under scrutiny for its Teams product, as thousands of users have reported disruption with Outlook after Microsoft released a new version of its Teams product. Microsoft is currently investigating the outage, affecting users in multiple countries worldwide.

The tech industry has been under increased pressure to address anti-competitive behaviour, and this latest lawsuit against Google signals a new era of antitrust enforcement. This could spell trouble for big tech companies increasingly facing more regulatory scrutiny in the U.S. and abroad.

It remains to be seen how the case against Google will unfold, which could have implications for the entire tech industry. In the meantime, Microsoft’s Teams product outage has shown that even the most prominent players in Silicon Valley are resistant to disruptions and outages. Yet another reminder of why tech companies must be held accountable for their actions.
