Here’s what the Google trial is and why you should care

The US Department of Justice’s 10-week antitrust trial against Google is underway and could spell big trouble for the Mountain View tech giant. The Justice Department, along with several individual states, argues that Google achieved its status as a dominant search company through anticompetitive means. Now the company has reached monopoly status and everything must be investigated.

This is a very watered-down set of claims, as U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta rejected claims that Google also engaged in anticompetitive behavior enabled by its dominant position, harming companies like Yelp and Tripadvisor through Google Search , at the beginning of August. However, Google is finally facing some consequences for its actions, even if it dodged a bullet in this case.
