Senate Panel Sets September Hearing On Google

July 28, 2011

The Senate Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee has scheduled its widely anticipated hearing on Google's business practices, featuring Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt, for Sept. 21.

After initially resisting the subcommittee's request to send Schmidt or CEO Larry Page to appear, Google gave in earlier this month and agreed to allow Schmidt, who stepped down as CEO in April, to testify.

The hearing, titled "The Power of Google: Serving Consumers or Threatening Competition?," will explore concerns that Google is using its dominance in Internet search and online advertising to benefit its own products and services over its competitors. Google revealed last month that the Federal Trade Commission has opened an antitrust probe of the company into these same issues.

The firm has defended its business practices, saying in a blog post at the time that, "We're committed to giving you choices, ensuring that businesses can grow and create jobs, and, ultimately, fostering an Internet that benefits us all."
