US Antitrust Investigation Could Include more Tech Companies

In addition to Google, the antitrust investigation taken up by the US government could be expanded to include Facebook, Amazon and Apple. It is not yet known when they will be undertaken, but, according to Reuters, the Justice Department and Federal Trade Commission have worked out which companies they will examine for potential anti-competitive practices.

Charlotte Slaiman, former FTC antitrust enforcement attorney and now policy counsel for competition at Public Knowledge, was interviewed by CBSN yesterday to explain what is involved in antitrust investigations.
