Google's Schmidt Gets His Own Panel Next Week

September 16, 2011

Google's Executive Chairman gets his own seat at the table next week when the Senate Judiciary's antitrust subcommittee holds a hearing on whether Google is a boon or a bully.

Schmidt has been schmoozing a bit ahead of time .

Ranking member Mike Lee, R-Utah, has said will focus on "a number of important issues relating to Google and Internet search competition." But the title of the hearing makes it clear who's on the carpet: "The Power of Google: Serving Consumers or Threatening Competition?"

Other invited guests include: Jeff Katz. CEO of Nextag, Inc; Yelp co-founder and CEO Jeremy Stoppelman; and antitrust experts Thomas Barnett of Covington & Burling LLP and Susan Creighton of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, PC.

They all have to share a table, however.
