Google, the world’s largest Internet search engine, is on several fronts a danger that has to be stopped, a study released by Austria’s Graz University claims.
A research team led by Prof Hermann Maurer, chairman of Graz University’s Institute for Information Systems and Computer Media, argues that Google is creating unacceptable monopolies in many areas of the worldwide web.
According to his research, around 61 billion Internet searches are conducted each month. In the US, on average 57 per cent of searches are conducted with Google, and up to 95 per cent of Internet users use Google at least sometimes.
“Google is massively invading privacy,” the study said with the company knowing more than any other organisation about individuals and companies, but not bound by national data protection laws.
The study argues that Google is influencing economies in the way advertisements and documents are ranked.
