“We are investigating Google and the probe would take at least a couple of months,” said Mr S. L. Bunker, the secretary of the commission. The CCI is investigating this affair in answer to a complaint from match-making internet site Bharatmatrimony.com. A Google interpreter assured line of business that the company hadn’t received any communicating on the affair.
In 2009, Chennai-based Consim Bharat Pvt Ltd, which owns bharatmatrimony.com and indiaproperties.com, filed a petition against Google in the Chennai state supreme court for ‘conflicting’ on its trademark. The company told Google adverts were utilized in BharatMatrimony’s platform to sell space to its competitors.
For instance, whenever a exploiter types ‘Tamil matrimony’ in the Google search field, the resulting advertizements or sites shown let in shaadi.com and simplymarry.com. According to Consim, this displayed that Google permitted its competition to bid on the earmarks of BharatMatrimony.
Consim had asked for Rs 10.05 lakh as harms for conflicting on its earmarks and URLs. Authorities in the US, Argentina and Republic of Korea are probing Google’s web advert example given the dominance it enjoys in the market.
