Consumer Watchdog today filed a letter with the Federal Trade Commission requesting that the government file a lawsuit against Google and seek to dismantle Google's separate business units due to its monopolistic behavior. Specifically, Consumer Watchdog wants the FTC to force Google to divest its Motorola Mobility unit, which it finalized purchasing earlier this year. It also thinks Google's Gmail and Google+ businesses, its YouTube business, and its enterprise application units should be spun off. Further, Consumer Watchdog suggests that Google's search business be separated from services where Google provides its own content.
