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.

Like many anti-trust cases, its about a monopoly using its market power in the monopoly area to dominate a new field as well.

Too much power naturally leads to the abuse of that power. Its good that the government occasionally steps in to limit the power of large corporations, and kind of sad that it doesn't do it more often.

Also, Wasn't it stanford that gave birth to google? Larry and Sergey both got their masters from Stanford.
