Google's business practices are currently under review by the Federal Trade Commission, several state Attorneys General, and the European Commission. Competitors and critics assert that the Google search engine, and its search engine's results, should be reviewed and potentially regulated by government authorities. Google and its supporters assert that it is merely trying to provide the best answers for consumers. In the fast moving technology space, what role -- if any -- should antitrust authorities play in policing search engine methodology and results? How should regulators respond to allegations of "unfairness?" Most recently, the government's interest in Google has expanded to include questions about its proposed acquisition of Motorola -- what is the proper governmental role here?
