UK Competition Watchdog Launches Second Probe into Google Ads Business

The UK’s Competition and Markets Authority has launched a new probe into Google’s advertising business. According to the competition watchdog, it is investigating  “whether Google limited the interoperability of its ad exchange with third-party publisher ad servers and/or contractually tied these services together, making it more difficult for rival ad servers to compete.”
