IAP Statement on DOJ Lawsuit Against Google for Digital Ad Market Monopoly

January 24, 2023

WASHINGTON — Mike Davis, Founder and President of the Internet Accountability Project (IAP), released the following statement regarding the U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ) latest lawsuit against Big Tech monopolist Google for its anticompetitive control over the digital advertising market.

“There’s not much the Biden administration is doing right, but enforcement of federal antitrust laws is one area on which we agree. Big Tech monopolists like Google have far too much control over the digital ad market because they engage in unfair, anticompetitive, and illegal practices. Too much market share concentrated within one mega-company quashes potential competitors, reduces consumer choice, and limits innovation. The DOJ’s lawsuit against Google is a significant step in the right direction and a potential moment of reckoning for Big Tech monopolists. Americans are fortunate to have Jonathan Kanter at the Justice Department leading the charge. Federal law enforcement and market competition are conservative principles. Congress must follow suit and modernize federal antitrust law to hold Big Tech accountable,” Mike Davis said.

Late last year, the IAP played a significant role in securing big wins for antitrust reforms that eventually made its way into becoming law, proving that the conservative path forward to rein in Big Tech is through strengthened antitrust law. The IAP was one of the first Big Tech accountability organizations to endorse Jonathan Kanter to be the Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust at the DOJ. 

The Internet Accountability Project is a conservative grassroots advocacy organization that opposes Big Tech and seeks to hold these companies accountable for their bad acts.
