I'm in Australia and can confirm the above mentioned. I've seen these emails/offers pop up more then once lately.
for me, there is only one consequence: break up the company into at least two independent businesses - namely search and advertising. but if that's already a solution, i don't know.
May I suggest you write and urge others to write as well to your representatives in the government. They will act if enough people care.
FTC, The US Senate and EU are already investigating their monopolist actions. Let's limit the damage, otherwise the beast will eat us all. This is not free market, it's the opposite, IMO. Either way you have the right to express your opinions and the if your government acts, Google has the right to defend their stance.
