5 thoughts on “Should Regulators Block Google-Yahoo Deal?”

  1. “the ability to set prices for search ads with no fear of being undercut by its much weaker sole competitor”. In what way does Google set prices?

  2. A beginner’s guide to anyone commenting on the Google-Yahoo saga

    1) The US is not the only nation in the world. It is one of about 150. George W. Bush doesn’t get this. Do you?

    2) Google is a global search engine and Yahoo is a global media company. The WTO, not the FCC, is the place to decide this.

    3) Online advertising is not the only kind of advertising. Google’s share should be measured as a part of global advertising revenues in all media.

    4) If online ad revenues are the only issue, then regulators from all nations should sit and analyse this. In banking you have the Bank of International Settlements.
    More on my blog. I don’t get paid to write comments on GigaOM:) And I don’t support Loser Generated Content!

  3. I wanted to vote but don’t like the choices. I think they should not interfere, but I don’t think Yahoo! would die from that either.
