Watchout Stockmarket, The Governments Coming

U.S. probes Google deal on DoubleClick

 The Federal Trade Commission has launched an investigation into Google’s plan to purchase DoubleClick Inc. for $3.1 billion, The New York Times said.

Citing an industry executive who had been briefed on the FTC’s preliminary antitrust investigation, the newspaper said the inquiry was opened last week after it was determined that the commission, rather than the Justice Department, should conduct the review.

The last time the government tried to mess around with the internet the stock market crashed.
