“For the last 12 years, Google has abused its monopoly.” These are the words of Kenneth Dintzer, the lawyer representing the United States Department of Justice, during the opening of the oral trial against the technology giant that is being held this Tuesday in Washington. In defending his complaint, the lawyer has revealed that he has paid $10 billion a year to ensure that smaller rivals never grew thanks to exclusivity agreements with web browsers and mobile devices.

“This case is about the future of the internet and whether Google’s search engine will ever face significant competition,” Dintzer defended during his speech, where he insisted that the company is ‘de facto’ a monopoly at least. . since 2010 and today controls more than 89% of the online search market. These exclusivity agreements have been signed with mobile manufacturers such as Apple, telecommunications operators such as AT&T and browser manufacturers such as Mozilla.
