It seems Microsoft's top lawyer does not like Yahoo and Google getting cozy, He on Thursday warned that any deal between Yahoo and Google would hurt competition. WOw! This coming from a company that has been sighted as a monopoly!
"Any definitive agreement between Yahoo and Google would consolidate over 90 percent of the search-advertising market in Google's hands. This would make the market far less competitive, in contrast to our own proposal to acquire Yahoo," Microsoft General Counsel Brad Smith said in a statement.
The statement follows reports that Yahoo is considering a limited test of using Google to deliver some search advertising.
Smith said Microsoft will "assess closely all of our options." Microsoft is looking and even threatening to purchase Yahoo!
