Heritage Foundation Says Stop Picking on Google

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

James Gattusso of Heritage notes:

It is ironic that Google, which for so long helped lead the effort to regulate other Internet firms, is now defending itself against similar efforts by others. It is an inconsistency that is far too common in Washington. But that inconsistency does not justify the current attacks on Google or lessen the harm to consumers and the economy if the firm is regulated.

The message to policymakers—and to other Internet firms tempted to jump on the pro-regulatory bandwagon for competitive advantage—should be “don’t be evil” and let the marketplace work.
