Search Neutrality as an Antitrust Principle

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Daniel A. Crane, University of Michigan Law School discusses Search Neutrality as an Antitrust Principle.

ABSTRACT: Google's perceived dominance in Internet search, and the perception that Google exploits this dominance to favor its own websites and service, has led to call for a mandatory legal requirement of "search neutrality." This essay argues that a general principle of search neutrality ignores the realities of Internet search and would stymie search innovation.
