U.S. says Google breakup may be needed to end violations of antitrust law

The U.S. sued Google accusing the tech major of market monopoly and added: “nothing is off the table” when asked about breaking up Google.

The federal government’s complaint against Alphabet Inc’s (GOOGL.O), which alleges that Google acted unlawfully to maintain its position in search and search advertising on the internet, was joined by 11 states.

“Absent a court order, Google will continue executing its anticompetitive strategy, crippling the competitive process, reducing consumer choice, and stifling innovation,” the lawsuit states.
