Consumer Group To Call For Google Break Up

A California consumer group will this week call on the United States Justice Department to launch an antitrust action against Google, with the intent that the search giant should be broken up.

Consumer Watchdog will formally announce its push in a press conference titled “The Antitrust Case Against Google” in Washington, D.C. Wednesday, according to the SF Chronicle.

“We, as an organization, have concluded that there’s enough evidence on the table to warrant this, to go beyond the reactive steps that the regulatory agencies have followed up until now,” a spokesman told the paper.

The push to break up Google comes after Google has been targeted on privacy and competition grounds in the United States and Europe.
