We got an email today from the FairSearch Coalition with a witness list for Google’s upcoming hearing with the Senate Committee on the Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, competition policy and consumer rights.
The hearing takes place on Wednesday, September 21 at 2:00 p.m. The witness list is as follows:
Mountain View, CA
Panel II Jeff Katz
Chief Executive Officer
San Mateo, CA
Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer
San Francisco, CA
Thomas O. Barnett
Covington & Burling LLP
Susan A. Creighton
Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, PC
FairSearch also attached what it calls it refers to as a “Fact Sheet”:
They also put together a list of Google quotes here.
FairSearch, as you may know, was formed mainly to see Google’s acquisition of ITA Software blocked. It’s made up mainly of competing travel sites. Google actually just launched Flight Search this week, based on ITA technology.
While the coalition was unable to see the acquisition blocked it still continues to fight Google on competition policy.
It should be quite interesting to learn the results of the hearing.
