And again a German politician fires at Google
Google and Germany will most probably never be friends. After Merkel, some law suits, the suggestion of Analytics being illegal, Streetview hassle and not getting "Gmail" and different German politicians opposing to Google's bookdeal German Minister of Justice, Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger (try pronouncing that when you're British), told German magazine Der Spiegel she feels Google is becoming a monopoly.
"All in all, what's taking shape there to a large extent is a giant monopoly, similar to Microsoft. My initial response is not to ban something or stop something. But I do want to create more transparency and ensure that users know what is going on with their data.
The statement is yet another blow to Google's position in Germany. The search giant however remains the biggest one in Germany with a market share way over 90%.
