What the DOJ’s antitrust case against Google means for the future of the tech industry


This week, a landmark antitrust case between the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) antitrust division and Google began, marking the most significant legal challenge to a tech monopoly since the DOJ took on Microsoft in the 1990s. The case focuses on allegations that Google violated antitrust laws by using its dominance to enter into exclusive agreements with mobile phone manufacturers and internet browser creators, setting its search engine as the default option for consumers. Conan D’Arcy is joined by Ugonma Nwankwo to unpack the trial’s details and explore its potential impact, including for the future of US antitrust enforcement and the next generation of technology.
