The American Antitrust Institute (AAI) congratulates the Department of Justice (DOJ) Antitrust Division on its role in convincing a Court to stop the Google books deal and Judge Denny Chin of the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of New York for his well-reasoned judgment. This relatively unusual participation in the settlement of a private lawsuit by the DOJ (and many others) challenged a creative and complex scheme that would have allowed Google to create, in Judge Chin's words, a "de facto monopoly over unclaimed works.”

The American Antitrust Institute (AAI) praised the Department of Justice (DOJ) today for entering into an agreement that would prohibit United Regional Health Care System of Wichita Falls, Texas, which enjoys monopoly power over most hospital services in its region, from entering into contracts that improperly inhibit commercial health insurers from contracting with United Regional's competitors.

In a white paper issued today, the American Antitrust Institute (AAI) states the proposed merger between Google and ITA Software, Inc. (ITA) could be straining the boundaries of antitrust analysis, but serious consideration of a challenge is warranted.
