    Nothing will happen. Today almost all govts are running by big corporates from backend. Govts can't touch them.

    I dont get it. I am not very good about these stuffs.
    Please explain.
    If I own Google, I can do whatever I want. I can even put cat pictures to all search queries.
    How can another person sue me for doing that?

    There are monopoly and fair competition rules/laws in place to protect people like you and me and the economy not to be controlled by a single entity.

    In this time where they are facing losses in the YT section this will sting them a bit more.

    Its called killing competition. Google had so many resources if it continue to rig every keyword in its favor then soon all other sites will be dead. For example if Microsoft had blocked installing 3rd party softwares on windows then there would have no other software company existed. Small players needs some rules so they can fight with big players

    google is evil, same things is in google play... They don't care about us developers. By my 2 years experience, I can say that there is no rules, people who are working there, they are evil, they don't care about developers.

    Developers don't have even phone line, about half years they made live chat, but it is working only 5 hours in day.

    Buddy, they're all going to pay... just yesterday the French gvt fined Apple for $400m but they said it was only a fraction of what they owed from all those years of opening stores around the country that are taxed in Ireland (like with all big US corporations implanted in the EU)...

    9 billion is probably what they took from us by showing our content directly on SERPs surrounded by their ads. If governments start hitting google with what they deserve, they might start valuing webmasters again like they used to one day.

    I remember googleguy asking for help at another forum! He was so humble then. Now they dictate everything and fuck it, if you don't move over they bulldoze you.

    Things are gonna change. The pendulum swings back one day.

    Got adsense account banned for invalid click activity, never done anything wrong in 3 months, also lost 3k gbp in adsense account. Made appeal, but it didn't helped, also got domain ban from adsense.

    Then google play one time deleted app and banned my account for webview and affiliate spam, this means that I`m using not mine website in webview. After one month proving that this site is mine, I got back my account, with app that had 100k installs. After 3 weeks they deleted again app, saying that there is nudity, there whose only girl in bikini, after that app had pegi 18. So made appeal and get answer that they will not give back my app and I can try reupload same app with different package name.

    Funniest when facebook full of porn is parent guided.

    Another funny thing is that apps have rating like pegi 18, but screens must be appropriate for all people.

    Next story, one years old app that have 1 300 000+ downloads, whose ranked very nice, but after google play algorithm update, lost all ranks, daily installs from 7-8k dropped to 700-500. After contacting google, they said app still ranks not bad, and I need to read aso book... So what is dam point working one years, investing hiudge money when you can lose all ranks in one night?

    After that I read a lot of stories from other people, when google play staff is destroying people's lives with one dam click. Worst thing is when you work hard and fair, but other work not fair and google supports them. In google market it is tons of apps that have 30-50k positive reviews and that apps have less than million downloads. It is hard to get 5-6k reviews in one million, but this is fine by google. :)
