Google "Beneath the sheen of do-gooder ideology, FairSearch can be most charitably described as a Google watchdog. It seeks to fan the flames of disapproval where they've started organically, originate them where they haven't, and generally disseminate negativity toward the Google brand. Think of it as a PR firm working to destroy rather than create goodwill." To make matters worse, FairSearch' work isn't even very good.

They practically own the web already,

I really fail to see how. They've made it work for them. Really well. But that's not the same as owning. They don't even own the web video media codec space.

And I think the Fairsearch group would be better off without them, because MS being a part of this group only serves as a distraction. It's kind of like having a pedophile as part of a coalition to fight child sex abuse.

It's more like having Joseph Ratzinger as head of the Catholic Church.
