The Justice Department's suit against Google marks the government's most significant act to protect competition since its groundbreaking case against Microsoft more than 20 years ago.

WASHINGTON - The Justice Department on Tuesday sued Google for abusing its dominance in online search and advertising - the government's most significant attempt to protect competition since its groundbreaking case against Microsoft more than 20 years ago.

And it could just be an opening salvo. Other major tech companies including Apple, Amazon and Facebook are under investigation at both the Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission.

"Google is the gateway to the internet and a search advertising behemoth," U.S. Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen told reporters. "It has maintained its monopoly power through exclusionary practices that are harmful to competition."
