Legal "Google is facing a new antitrust probe by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission into whether the company is using its leadership in the online display-advertising market to illegally curb competition, people familiar with the matter said." Sucks to be Google today, apparently.

Google started from little if not nothing (a student MIT project) so why "competition" is asking for regulation ? Cannot compete, then litigate ?

Of course! Don't you know that one can only be successful by exploiting and trampling those who aren't? Success is evil, all must be given to the collective. </sarcasm>
This attitude is becoming prevalent in not only the people but the government in what could once be called the land of the free. In short terms: don't bother to compete, litigate or the collective will go after *you* next. If you compete, you're an evil bastard who needs to give everything to those who did not think of it themselves.
This is why *all* government protectionism must be eliminated. Patents, anti-trust, etc all need to go. Otherwise, we'll see this cycle over and over again and true innovation will be quashed beneath a mound of bureaucratic nonsense in the name of "fairness."
