FTC sues Fb in antitrust lawsuit as regulators mount offensive

The USA Federal Commerce Fee has filed a lawsuit in opposition to Fb (NASDAQ:), Inc., the place it alleges that the company has been participating in anti-competitive practices ever since buying a dominant international place on the flip of the 2010s.

In accordance with public case information launched on Wednesday, the regulator believes that Fb has systematically bought or reproduced the options of any social media competitor that might have posed a risk to the corporate’s dominance. The lawsuit cites the 2012 buy of Instagram and 2014 acquisition of WhatsApp as probably the most egregious examples of anti-competitive practices.
