Google Reaches Settlements With FTC Over Search, Patent Practices
by George H. Pike
On Jan. 3, 2013, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Google reached a series of agreements that closed the FTC's investigation into several of Google's business practices, in return for Google's agreement to modify those practices. The investigation looked into practices in three primary areas: that Google misused patent protection laws to prevent competition, that Google misappropriated content from rivals' websites in providing specialized search results and provided biased search results, and that Google imposed contract restrictions in its search advertising agreements that limited the ability of small businesses to advertise on competing platforms. While the wide-ranging settlement would seem to end the immediate threat of an antitrust lawsuit by the federal government against Google, Google and its business practices continue to be investigated by other agencies.

Review of 2012 and Trends Watch 2013
by Paula J. Hane
2012 was quite an intense and turbulent year—wilder weather, the London Olympics (and a gymnastics gold for Gabby Douglas), the contentious U.S. Presidential election, Facebook's disastrous IPO, the iPhone 5, the iPad Mini, patent lawsuits, and, as we neared the end of 2012, the "Fiscal Cliff." And drat, that was too close for comfort. Over the past year, the most-read news article on the infotoday.com site was my NewsLink Spotlight article posted Dec. 3, 2012, "The Fight for a Free and Open Internet." It clearly touched a nerve.
