Google is under fire in Washington by an unlikely combination of onetime antitrust defendants like Microsoft and AT&T and liberal consumer groups that have been their traditional antagonists because of the takeover deal with DoubleClick.
David Evans, a consultant with the firm LECG hired by Microsoft, calculates
that Google currently has a 27 percent share of the market for
"publisher tools." But if combined with DoubleClick, Evans says, the
company would command 78 percent of the publisher tools market.
