The latest news is that the KinderStart.com case may proceed to court. This is as per the last Friday's hearing. Kinderstart.com has accused Google of violating antitrust laws. Kinderstart.com's lawyer said "What Google is trying to do is take out the competition."
The judge gave KinderStart.com's lawyers until September 29th to make revisions to the complaint. The judge said, "You can't just file a blanket lawsuit and say, 'We think we're going to find some stuff.'" Google said its search rankings are opinions and entitled to free-speech protection. Google can use any criteria it wishes to rank websites, including downgrading competitors. Let's see which way the ball rolls.
