Australian Watchdog Wins Appeal Of Google Ruling
The Federal Court has dealt Google a blow in finding for the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) on Tuesday that the search giant engages in false and misleading advertising. In overturning a previous judgment, the court said that ads using keywords for Honda, Harvey World Travel, Alpha Dog Training and Just 4X4 Magazine were published by Google and led consumers to rival company websites. It ordered Google to pay the ACCC’s costs. Google said it was disappointed by the ruling.
