Google So, Google has come under scrutiny by the US Federal Trade Commission for possible anti-competitive practices. While I would say the FTC has far larger threats to competition to worry about (the inevitable p-word), it would appear there's sufficient suspicion to take a gander at Google's business practices.

P-Word

The p-word is patent, particularly software patents. If anything, they should be investigating Apple for their anti-competitive use of their software patent portfolio. But I guess that's actually legal given that software patents are legal. It really saddens me that this is what our "free market" has come to. This country is not-so-slowly turning into a corporate distopia.
