India To Launch Antitrust Investigation Into Google [online.wsj.com]
India has launched an antitrust probe of Google Inc.'s online advertising business to investigate potential anti-competitive practices, government officials familiar with the matter say, marking the latest setback for the Internet giant in an emerging market where it has lofty ambitions.

Yep. Google sure are coming up on the radar more and more often around the planet.

This news is amusing considering that whenever I call Google on a local number I get someone in India.

Did you see the news where "do no evil" was busted hacking Safari web browser users to up their ad traffic?

Leave it to Google to face anti-trust in multiple countries but still manage to lul investors into thinking all is well. Falling from $600 won't look pretty so expect G to perform a stock split soon to keep it from looking dramatic, on paper at least.
