DOJ prepares another Google suit The actual submission to the search giant is not yet imminent, the two probe-savvy tell POLITICO Antitrust Wizard Lianai Ren, but Google is the fifth May avoid major antitrust proceedings. According to the Interactive Advertising Bureau, prosecutors have spent months creating complaints focused on one of the pinnacles of a company’s business model.

After Aon and Willis Towers Watson canceled their contract to build the world’s largest insurance brokerage and risk management service in July, DOJ Antitrust lawyers preparing for a trial in that case to Google and Apple Reassigned to the investigation. Their March Order: Summarize those surveys by the end of the year.

But Google’s advertising technology survey is closest to the finish line, and the Justice Department won’t wait for the president to choose a deputy antitrust chief attorney to get OK from the Senate. Attorney General Merrick Garland and Associate Attorney Vanita Gupta will make a final call on whether to sue Google if the canter has not yet been confirmed by the time the prosecutor is ready. Their involvement as decision makers can also help ease the technology industry’s concerns about conflicts of interest that may be caused by former Kanters clients.

The Department of Justice is still discussing: where to submit. The department usually prefers DC, but an antitrust proceeding against Google by the State Attorney General and private plaintiffs is already underway in front of Judge P. Kevin Castel in the Federal Court of Justice in Manhattan. A submission in New York will allow a court to decide on Google’s fate.

Going a Memory Path: Google’s advertising technology has been one of DOJ’s main focal points since it began investigating the company in 2019, and many observers have said that the department will file a proceeding last year on the issue. I was expecting it. Instead, when the department sued Google in October, it focused on the online search market.

Antitrust investigations against Apple are underway, but DOJ prosecutors who attended daily antitrust trials against iPhone makers of game developer Epic Games in May waited for Judge Yvonne Gonzales Rogers. There is. Her decision in the Epic case is expected one day and can affect both whether the DOJ decides to sue and where to sue.

Hilltop Section 230 Bills have introduced more than 20 bills to renew or abolish the online legal liability that protects the Internet platform from liability for what users post. Our Julia Alsiga disassembles them for professionals this morning:

Parliamentarians on both sides of the aisle were dissatisfied with how major technology platforms approach content moderation policies, despite a variety of reasons, and made changes to Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996. I’m looking for. Democrats are concerned that the platform is using Section 230 to avoid accountability for the spread of false information and other dangerous content, but Republicans discriminate against conservatives on the same platform. It states that it is using section 230 for this.

That discrepancy can make it difficult to make a meaningful review of the law. Emma Lanso, director of the Center for Democracy & Technology Freedom of Expression Project, has no momentum on any particular ideas for changing Section 230. A tank that promotes the democratic value of technology.

No way: Republicans are likely to propose to completely revoke the ideas endorsed by former President Donald Trump, but they only maintain political grandeur as Democrats continue to dominate.

Long Shot: One of the strategies that worked in the past is to create a law that creates exceptions for Section 230. Technology policy watchers believe that HR 3184 (117), led by Congressman Yvette Clarke (DN.Y.), could become a law. The bill will hold the platform responsible for civil rights infringement in targeted advertising.

Potentially Promising: A bipartisan approach is to tie Section 230 protection to platform action. This requires the platform to take certain actions, such as publishing transparency reports and clearly defining public content moderation policies, in order for the platform to maintain legal protection.

Texas Technical Tension Texas faces criticism from some technology companies about the restrictive abortion law that came into force last week after the Supreme Court refused to intervene in the court’s opposition. And in another move that frustrates Silicon Valley, Texas Governor Greg Abbott is expected to sign a social media bill soon after landing at his desk on Friday.

Déjà vu: Late last week, the Texas Parliament approved measures aimed at curbing perceived anti-conservative discrimination. (A similar law in Florida was temporarily blocked by a federal judge because of concerns about possible violations of the First Amendment. The ruling is on appeal.)

The Texas Social Media Bill requires publishing information about content moderation practices and outcomes and implementing an appealing process for moderation decisions on platforms with at least 50 million monthly active US users. Texas users can also sue the platform on suspicion of censorship.

Critics of the bill, including NetChoice and the Computer and Communications Industry Association, which co-led the challenge to Florida law, as well as prominent technology industry associations such as the Chamber of Progress, online platforms implement their own moderation policies. Remove content that seems offensive, stating that you should have the right.

Abortion Blowback: Meanwhile, many tech companies opposed Texas’s new abortion ban in about six weeks, when human embryos first showed detectable signs of heart activity. The law also criminalizes helping to promote illegal abortion. This has raised concerns with Uber and Lyft that the law could affect drivers who take passengers through the process. In response, the CEOs of two major ride-sharing services said they would help their company cover the attorney’s fees for drivers. Texas-based dating app Bumble said he would create a relief fund to support the reproductive rights of people seeking abortion in the light of the law, and Shah, CEO of Texas-based Match Group. Dubey owns a dating app like Tinder. She said in an internal memo that she would set up a fund for law-affected employees and their dependents to seek out-of-state care.
