    Did the FTC get this right?
    The FTC wanted to sue Google for ripping off Trip Advisor and Yelp, but ultimately the Commission backed down. Did they do the right thing?

    The Wall Street Journal article noted that it was unusual for the FTC to ignore the competition staff’s recommendations to sue but pointed out that the FTC’s economics staff opposed filing a lawsuit, and the Obama administration has a close relationship with Google executives.

    Looks like things may not be as easy for Google internationally!

    Google May Have Appeased the FTC, But Can It Beat Europe's Regulators?
