Google sued in Australia over "misleading and deceptive conduct"

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission [ACCC] in Australia asserts that Google “engaged in misleading and deceptive conduct” by allowing Trading Post to buy ads in the name of the car dealerships. Also, ACCC is also claiming that the way Google displays its links is misleading.

On Google’s search results page, sponsored links appear in a colored panel at the top of the page, and in a narrow column on the right-hand side of the page. Both areas include a small heading identifying the results as sponsored.
