Google has been hit with a £13.6bn lawsuit over claims the tech giant’s stranglehold on the online advertising market has deprived publishers of revenue.
XLK, VGT, FTEC, ONLN and VCR are part of the Zacks top Analyst Blog.
Google was sued on Wednesday by a group of British website publishers who allege the U.S. company and its parent Alphabet abused their dominant position in online advertising, depriving them of revenue. The class action claim was filed at the Competition Appeal tribunal on behalf of 130,000 businesses publishing around 1.75 million website and apps in Britain, law firms Humphries Kerstetter and Geradin Partners said in a statement. Google dismissed the lawsuit in an emailed statement.
