1plusV, a French search company, has filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google to the tune of $423 million, alleging the sum equals the amount of business it has lost due to Google’s anti-competitive business practices.

The lawsuit claims that Google blacklisted 30 1plusV search engines from 2007 to 2010, causing irreparable damage. CNN Money reports that this is the third lawsuit 1plusV has filed against Google, and that the French search company would not be entitled to any monetary compensation from the first two lawsuits.

1plusV founder Bruno Guillard told CNN that it is very difficult for a small company to take on a global giant. In a statement, Guillard said “In addition to seeking a positive outcome in the French Commercial Court, 1plusV continues to expect the European Commission to order Google to rapidly put an end to anti-competitive practices.”

Google is under investigation by the Federal Trade Commission regarding antitrust issues, and the Department of Justice “heavily scrutinized” the recent purchase of a flight data software company and the $400 million purchase of Admeld, a digital advertising toolmaker. disclaimer: This article: French Search Company Files $423 Million Antitrust Lawsuit Against Google was posted on Thursday, July 7th, 2011 at 8:43 pm at and is filed under Food Poisoning Lawsuits.
