Does Google Leverage Market Power Through Tying and Bundling?

Benjamin Edelman, Journal of Competition Law and Economics, pp. 365-400, June 2015

See Benjamin G. Edelman's resume

I examine Google’s pattern and practice of tying to leverage its dominance into new sectors.

I explore the technical and commercial implementations of these practices and identify their effects on competition. I conclude that Google’s tying tactics are suspect under antitrust law.
