Washington: The U.S. Department of Justice last week sued Google for violating industry competition rules by providing information and advertising while searching the Internet.
U.S. lawmakers and Noko's lawyers have long accused Google of violating competition rules by providing information and advertising while searching the Internet to make a profit by suppressing competition.
The U.S. Department of Justice filed the lawsuit Tuesday in a U.S. court in Washington. The lawsuit alleges that Google paid billions of dollars to cell phone manufacturers to ensure that mobile phones were used only by customers when searching for information on the Internet.
The company is currently being prosecuted in court after a one-year investigation by a U.S. law firm subcommittee into violating industry competition rules.
Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen told reporters: "Google is the gateway to the Internet. The company retains its monopoly through misconduct that damages the opportunities of competitors.
Cases related to violations of industry competition rules in the field of technology should be investigated expeditiously. If we do not do so, we are likely to lose the next level of growth in new inventions. '
In a statement, Google said in a statement that "the lawsuit filed by the US Department of Justice is completely false. People do not use Google out of compulsion or out of compliance with other search engines. They use it at will."
