In December, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a complaint about Google’s advertising technology business, in one of several suits alleging that Google abused its dominance of the internet search business or otherwise broke antitrust law.
“AG Paxton tries to paint Google’s involvement in this industry as nefarious,” Cohen wrote. “The opposite is true. Unlike some B2B companies in this space, a consumer internet company like Google has an incentive to maintain a positive user experience and a sustainable internet that works for all’consumers, advertisers and publishers.”
