New Anti-Trust Complaint Filed Against Google [bbc.co.uk]
A new complaint about Google's alleged anti-competitive behaviour has been filed by specialist French search engine 1plusV.

1plusV is the parent company of of eJustice.fr and runs so-called vertical search engines that specialise in law, music and culture.

It said that between 2006 and 2010 Google prevented vertical search firms from using its online advertising service AdSense.

"This is the only truly effective way of obtaining targeted advertising on a search engine," 1plusV said in a statement.

It also alleges that, in the weeks following the original complaint, Google delisted sites published by it.
