08:40 EDTGOOGFTC responds to recent Google reports, calls claims of impropriety factless
In a statement released yesterday, the Federal Trade Commission responded to recent news regarding its 2012 antitrust investigation of Google. The Commission stated the inadvertently disclosed memo is "only a fraction [of the total documents that were reviewed.] As we stated when the investigation was closed, the Commission concluded that Google’s search practices were not, 'on balance, demonstrably anticompetitive.' Contrary to recent press reports, the Commission’s decision on the search allegations was in accord with the recommendations of the FTC’s Bureau of Competition, Bureau of Economics, and Office of General Counsel. Some of the FTC’s staff attorneys on the investigation raised concerns about several other Google practices. In response, the Commission obtained commitments from Google regarding certain of those practices. Over the last two years, Google has abided by those commitments... On the same day that it closed the search investigation, the Commission settled a complaint alleging that Google’s conduct with regard to certain standard essential patents constituted unfair methods of competition under the FTC Act. The Wall Street Journal article 'Google Makes Most of Close Ties to White House' makes a number of misleading inferences and suggestions about the integrity of the FTC’s investigation. The article suggests that a series of disparate and unrelated meetings involving FTC officials and executive branch officials or Google representatives somehow affected the Commission’s decision to close the search investigation in early 2013. Not a single fact is offered to substantiate this misleading narrative. Finally, we regret the inadvertent disclosure of confidential documents and information in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. We are taking additional steps to ensure that such a disclosure does not occur in the future."
