Search giant facing antitrust investigation

Google has reportedly hired a former US Department of Justice attorney, Jeffrey Blattner, who served as a prosecutor for the government's antitrust actions against Microsoft more than a decade ago. The antitrust specialist is said to be one of several Google representatives present at an American Antitrust Institute (AAI) meeting, where the search giant is said to have defended its search system amid accusations of anticompetitive behavior.

Interestingly enough, the AAI reportedly also listened to Microsoft's antitrust allegations against Google, AAI fellow and University of Baltimore School of Law professor Robert Lande told Reuters.

The search company recently admitted that it is currently under investigation by the Federal Trade Commission. Microsoft and several other companies have called foul over Google's search results, which are accused of favoring Google's own services over the competition.
