Google’s competitors have been complaining to the FTC of certain competitive advantages that some might consider outside the scope of the law, and you can count five FTC commissioners among them. According to a Reuters report, these top decision-makers beliee an antitrust case against Google would be appropriate following over a year’s worth of digging into the matter. All but one commissioner feels there is sufficient proof that Google “illegally used its dominance of the search market to hurt its rivals.”

While the news doesn’t directly relate to the Android branch of the Big G’s operations, a case of this stature could result in one of the biggest shake-ups in the tech industry to date. The suit would likely come with the names of several of those registering complaints to the FTC attached.
