The United States government has sued the Internet giant Google for violating competitive market rules. Google is accused of violating competitive market system policies to dominate Internet-based search and online advertising.

Google is accused of bribing millions of dollars every year to stop its search engines from working on devices and browsers, including mobile phones, the BBC reports.

After more than a year of investigation, Google has been sued by the US Department of Justice and 11 US state administrations. Google bribed hundreds of millions of dollars a year to keep its search engine as default on devices and browsers, including mobile phones, on demand.

This is the biggest legal challenge of the US administration in recent years against one of the largest technology companies in the world.

The European Union had previously also fined Google on the same charges. Google has asked the European Commission to pay a fine of 820 million euros.

Meanwhile, Google called the case “deeply flawed.” The company affirms that the sector in which they operate is highly competitive and has always been a priority for the client.

Google said in a statement that people use Google voluntarily. No one is forced to use Google or cannot find alternatives.

Alphabet, the parent company of search engine giant Google, is expected to fight the US government’s allegations.
