This is the Google on Trial podcast and these are the Top Stories in the Last 24 Hours and for October 6, 2023

Google's former CEO Eric Schmidt testifies that the company was aware of antitrust concerns before it acquired DoubleClick in 2007. Schmidt said that Google was concerned that the acquisition could give it too much power in the online advertising market, but that the company ultimately decided to go ahead with it because it believed that the benefits of the deal outweighed the risks.
Google's current CEO Sundar Pichai testifies that the company is committed to competing fairly and that it does not engage in anticompetitive behavior. Pichai said that Google is "constantly innovating" and that it is "always looking for new ways to improve our products and services for our users."
The Google trial is a complex case with a lot of moving parts, and it is still too early to say how it will be decided. However, the testimony of Schmidt and Pichai in the last 24 hours has shed some new light on the company's thinking about competition and antitrust issues.

The Google trial is a major antitrust case brought against the company by the US Department of Justice and 11 states. The plaintiffs allege that Google has abused its dominance in the online advertising market by engaging in anticompetitive behavior, such as favoring its own products and services over those of its rivals.
Google has denied the allegations and has argued that it is a pro-competitive company that benefits consumers. The company has also said that the government's case is based on a flawed understanding of the online advertising market.
The trial is expected to last for several weeks. If the plaintiffs are successful, Google could be forced to make significant changes to its business practices.
