Google Panel Discussion - "Is Google Doing No Evil"

In summary - the Google issue has two components - technology and legal (anti-trust). The complaint - claims Google is practicing anti-competitive activities with it search engine results by favoring its own products as the answer to the search results. The outcome of the law suit could cause a un-bundling of Google products. This is similar to the Microsoft anti-competitive suite some years back. In this discussion we will clarify what is antitrust law states, draw contras to the Microsoft suite , draw contras between the competition and the Google position as stated in the senate hearing, demo the issue and discuss the potential solutions win or loss - is the answer a technical solution, business solution or possible both.


Joseph E. Richotte, an associate based in Butzel Long's Detroit office and John A. Rothchild, Associate Dean and Associate Professor at Wayne State University Law School will discuss the debate on is Google becoming a monopoly in the internet business space and should be split apart. Is Google pushing users to purchase exclusively from their branded products and business services?
