Google is in that position and yet, to the best of my knowledge, we don't even hear the gov implying that maybe the situation needs to be examined. In fact, I have never even seen it discussed outside of the webmaster community.
i think that's probably because they don't really sell stuff. when microsoft had sole control of the only operating system out there, which everyone needed, and had to cough up money for, then that is easy to clamp down on because its been done a million times before. but users do not "need" google in the same sense. and they dont have to pay for it.
of course, the reality is that the control they have is even worse because they can literally bring a business down by dumping them out the serps. microsoft could never do that with windows.
