Google facing antitrust investigation in Turkey

Turkey's competition authority is investigating whether the algorithms used by Google LLC in its searches and targeted advertisements broke the country's competition laws, Reuters reported.

The probe was launched in response to a complaint that Google had "abused its dominant position and made the efforts of other companies difficult," the authority said.

Google, its parent Alphabet Inc. and its units Google Reklamcilik ve Pazarlama, Google International LLC and Google Ireland Ltd. are all included in the investigation.

The same regulator previously fined Google about $15 million for violating competition laws in mobile software sales.
