WASHINGTON — Mike Davis, Founder and President of the Internet Accountability Project, issued the following statement after the bipartisan introduction of the Advertising Middlemen Endangering Rigorous Internet Competition Accountability (AMERICA) Act.
“The Advertising Middlemen Endangering Rigorous Internet Competition Accountability Act will break up Google’s online advertising monopoly. This bill from Senator Mike Lee is a silver bullet in the battle to dismantle Big Tech. Senate and House leadership must consider this legislation if they’re serious about combating the threat Big Tech poses to our online freedoms, economic innovation, and small business prosperity. Republicans like Mike Lee are leading on this issue–his colleagues in Congress who claim to be conservative warriors against Big Tech must join him,” said Davis.
According to Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), the “bill would restore and protect competition in digital advertising by eliminating conflicts of interest that have allowed the leading platforms in the market to manipulate ad auctions and impose monopoly rents on a broad swath of the American economy.”
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.
Unlike the Big Tech monopolies, the Internet Accountability Project pledges to never sell or share your personal information, which is your property.
