Turkey’s competition authority said today that it has launched an investigation into whether internet search engine Google broke competition law with algorithms it uses for searches and to target advertisements, Reuters reports.
The probe follows a complaint that Alphabet Inc’s Google unit had “abused its dominant position and made the efforts of other companies difficult,” the authority said.
The investigation will include companies Google Reklamcilik ve Pazarlama, Google International LLC, Google LLC, Google Ireland Limited and Alphabet Inc., it said.
In September, the authority fined Google around 93 million Turkish lira or $17.38 million for violating competition law with its mobile software sales.
