WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Upstart Internet search engine DuckDuckGo, which promotes itself as a Google Inc rival which does not track users’ personal information, says it is being hurt by the search giant which is being investigated by U.S. regulators.
The Federal Trade Commission has been examining allegations by Google critics that the company breaks antitrust laws by using its power in the market to smother competitors.
Many of the complaints are similar to assertions made by Gabriel Weinberg, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduate who started DuckDuckGo.com five years ago.
