Meanwhile on the Google Public Policy Blog, the company discusses the hearings and competition in the online ad space, which it obviously believes will not be harmed if the acquisition goes through. PaidContent excerpts and points to a report from AEI-Brookings Joint Center for Regulatory Studies, which by contrast argues against approval of the acquisition on the grounds that it would in fact concentrate too much power in Google’s hands.
