Google Vs MSN

Google have tried to force an extension of US Governments 4 year surveillance of Microsoft’s activities.

Last year, Google made a complaint to the Department of Justice that Windows Vistas built-in desktop search, limited consumer choice and violated the terms of Microsofts landmark 2001 anti trust settlement with the Government.

Google took the decision to go over the heads of the Department of Justice to request an extention of the 4 year anti trust review. However, their attempt has been refused.

Googles challenge came after Microsoft appealed to anti trust regulators to block its rival’s planned acquisition of Double Click.
