Google Is Target of ShopCity Antitrust Complaint to FTC

Google Inc., the subject of antitrust probes in the U.S. and Europe, is the target of another complaint by a rival company alleging it stifles competition in the Internet industry.

As the owner of the world’s most popular search engine, Google unfairly used its control of search results to damage ShopCity.com, a website that helps local businesses sell products, and favored its own competing service, according to a complaint ShopCity made Nov. 11 to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
