US Retailers With $1.5 Trillion In Sales Demand An Antitrust Probe Of Amazon And Google | Zero Hedge


RILA also raised concerns about how Amazon and Google support their products over other retailers on their platforms, collect data about competitors, and support the spread of counterfeit goods. It should be “quite concerning to the commission that Amazon and Google control the majority of all internet product search, and can very easily affect whether and how price and product information reaches consumers,” the trade group wrote.

The Trump administration has recently increased antitrust scrutiny of Amazon and Google could have a significant impact on the sector, even if charges are not brought.

FTC has claimed oversight of probes of Facebook and Amazon, while the DOJ will examine Google and Apple. Separately, the House Judiciary’s antitrust subcommittee started an antitrust investigation into the technology industry last month.

Groklaw legal site shuts over fears of NSA email snooping

Excerpt from the author: “My personal decision is to get off of the Internet to the degree it’s possible. I’m just an ordinary person. But I really know, after all my research and some serious thinking things through, that I can’t stay online personally without losing my humanness, now that I know that ensuring privacy online is impossible. I find myself unable to write. I’ve always been a private person. That’s why I never wanted to be a celebrity and why I fought hard to maintain both my privacy and yours.

Oddly, if everyone did that, leap off the Internet, the world’s economy would collapse, I suppose. I can’t really hope for that. But for me, the Internet is over.

So this is the last Groklaw article. I won’t turn on comments. Thank you for all you’ve done. I will never forget you and our work together. I hope you’ll remember me too. I’m sorry I can’t overcome these feelings, but I yam what I yam, and I tried, but I can’t.”
