Advertising Agencies Urge DOJ to Approve Microsoft-Yahoo Search Agreement

October 19, 2009

  • This letter is powerful evidence that the advertising industry remains deeply concerned about Google’s dominance of search advertising, and welcomes the prospect of a more viable search advertising competitive alternative — i.e. the proposed Microsoft-Yahoo’s search agreement.
