It became known this week that attorneys general of dozens of US states have filed antitrust lawsuits against Google. 36 US states and Washington have filed lawsuits in the Northern District of California. They accuse Google of violating antitrust laws while running their Android app store. The charge is mainly related to the fees Google charges developers for app purchases and subscriptions.
The lawsuit, led by the states of Utah, North Carolina, Tennessee, New York, Arizona, Colorado, Iowa and Nebraska, is the latest in a series of serious antitrust cases against major tech companies amid growing discontent with the growing wealth and influence of Silicon Valley companies.
It came just nine days after a federal judge in Washington dismissed the FTC’s antitrust lawsuit against Facebook, on the grounds that the agency did not provide sufficient evidence that the world’s largest social network is conducting monopoly activities.
Google has already called the lawsuit “groundless,” saying the changes the plaintiffs are demanding due to the Google Play Commission “will increase costs for small developers, limit their ability to innovate and compete, and make apps in the Android ecosystem less secure for consumers. “.
Google has sought to quell discontent by cutting commissions to 15% from its first million dollars in revenue annually.
