CA Lawmaker Wants Google/Yahoo Deal Investigated

California Assemblyman Joel Anderson wants the state's Attorney General to inspect the Google/Yahoo search ad deal

California Assemblyman Joel Anderson wants the state’s Attorney General to inspect the Google/Yahoo search ad deal. It’s already stalled by the U.S. Department of Justice. According to a CNET report, the San Diego Republican wrote the following to the AG: “I am writing to urge you to direct your office to take quick and decisive action by launching a formal investigation into the proposed business transaction between Google and Yahoo’s search-advertising business.”

Like other critics, he’s worried about search data privacy as the companies combine forces for some advertising. He’s also worried about competition, which is the DOJ’s main concern.

Yahoo denied the notion that it will merge data with Google.
