Dozens of States Just Sued To Break Up Google. The Biggest Losers Would Be Consumers.

But if the solution to that is to break up the company entirely, consumers again will suffer the brunt of that blow.

“Demanding Google stop providing direct answers and relevant information in searches to instead make users go through lists of websites will only degrade the experience and make it harder for consumers to find what they seek,” argues Carl Szabo, vice president and general counsel of the trade association NetChoice. “If successful, this lawsuit would make it harder for users to search for answers online and small businesses to reach customers by hiding contact information and facts behind clicks and paywalls.”
