Google accused of rigging search results; will face $418-million lawsuit

1plusV, French counterpart of Google's search engine, along with three other internet companies, has accused Google of exploiting its dominant market position to give preferential treatment to its own services while demoting rival sites.

The three other complainants against Google are Microsoft Corp, British price comparison site Foundem, and Microsoft-owned German price comparison site Ciao.

Google allegedly prevented 1plusV, which runs the legal website and search engine, from developing specialized "vertical" search engines and hindered the company from generating business and advertising. The lawsuit is for lost and future profits, said 1plusV.
