The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web:
After years of prodding from competitors and critics, Google is facing “a mountain of lawsuits” challenging its dominance of the internet, said Jennifer Saba and Gina Chon at Reuters BreakingViews. Recently, 38 states charged the search-engine giant with trying to use its power to “muscle its way” into similar control in areas from cars to smarthome devices. The new claims add to a suit filed earlier by 10 states, led by Texas, that accuses Google of misusing its power in internet advertising. All this comes on top of an October lawsuit from the Justice Department centered on deals the company made with phone makers to give its search engine a favored spot.
