Texas Versus Google

As Texas investigates anti-trust claims made against Google, The Wall Street Journal reports on a widening trend of government hostility toward the Internet giant.

“Texas’s top prosecutor has inquired about allegations by several small companies that Google unfairly demoted their rankings in search results or the placement of their advertisements on the search engine, Google said Friday. The Internet giant disputed the allegations, which have been reported previously, tracing them to three companies with ties to rival Microsoft Corp.

A spokesman for Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said an investigation of Google was ongoing but declined further comment. A Microsoft spokesman declined comment.”
