Antitrust Bill Targeting Amazon, Google, Apple Gets Support

From a Wall Street Journal story by Ryan Tracy headlined “Antitrust Bill Targeting Amazon, Google, Apple Gets Support From DOJ”:

The Justice Departmen endorsed legislation forbidding large digital platforms such as Amazon and Google from favoring their own products and services over competitors’, marking the Biden administration’s first full-throated support of the antitrust measure.

“The Department views the rise of dominant platforms as presenting a threat to open markets and competition, with risks for consumers, businesses, innovation, resiliency, global competitiveness, and our democracy,” says a letter to bipartisan leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee, signed by Peter Hyun, the Justice Department’s acting assistant attorney general for legislative affairs.
