The news broke yesterday morning that the EU is going after Google again for antitrust issues on their AdWords and AdSense programs. This is the third of such in about a year. This one says Google's advertising products had restricted consumer choice.

Margrethe Vestager, the region’s competition chief said "Google's conduct, based on our evidence, is harmful to consumers, adding "Google's magnificent innovations don't give it the right to deny competitors the chance to innovate."

Here is a video of part of that speech:

The folks at WebmasterWorld are having some fun with this news, one said "Maybe it's time for Gexit."

You can read more about this case on techmeme which pulls together many of the stories around this topic.

Personally, I have no opinion on this anyway - politics, legal and religion topics are not my thing.
