From Techdirt:

This is a part of the propaganda myth that’s made the rounds on a few sites. It ignores the fact that the fractional licensing debate was a big complex issue with many, many people arguing that the DOJ’s interpretation of the consent decree was correct. Yes, one of the people at the DOJ had a very loose connection in the distant past to Google, but the idea that the DOJ was making decisions for Google is made up out of thin air. Also wrong is the idea that “Ms. Pallante’s view won in court.” The challenges to the DOJ’s interpretation have just started. A judge has effectively put a hold on the interpretation for now, but it’s far from litigated.
