Google and Yahoo to spar with Microsoft in Congress on Tuesday

Posted by David Hunter at 10:18 PM ET.

Dawn Kawamoto reports at CNET on the upcoming Congressional fireworks related to Yahoo’s proposed search ad deal with Google:

Top legal counsel for Yahoo, Google, and Microsoft will address a Congressional hearing Tuesday, as lawmakers examine the Yahoo-Google search advertising agreement and its potential anticompetitive effects on the future of Internet advertising.

The Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights will call Microsoft general counsel Brad Smith, Yahoo general counsel Michael Callahan, and Google chief legal officer David Drummond to testify as witnesses.

Congressional hearings are mostly an opportunity for bloviating politicos to beat their chests and get their names in the Washington Post and NY Times, but it will be modestly interesting to have the parties repeat in public what they are telling the Department of Justice in private.
