Google questions Microsoft’s plan to buy Yahoo!
Microsoft’s plan to buy Yahoo has made Google to worry about the future of Internet. David Drummond, senior VP of corporate development (and the company’s chief legal officer) on the official Google Blog says that he worries the acquisition of the internet portal by a company that has “frequently sought to establish proprietary monopolies” could “extend unfair practices from browsers and operating systems to the internet.” His concern centers around the possibility that the combination of the two monoliths could “unfairly limit the ability of consumers to freely access competitors’ email, IM, and web-based services.” Sure, Google has more than a little stake in seeing fair play on the net (gotta keep those ad revenues up), but this is serious food for thought nonetheless.
Brad Smith, general counsel for Microsoft, has issued his own little statement here, telling us that Google holds far more marketshare when it comes to internet searching than a combined Microsoft and Yahoo! possibly could, and then going on to explain that the Redmond giant is “committed to openness, innovation, and the protection of privacy.” Uh, whatever you say Brad.
