This is the Google Trial podcast and these are the Major headlines from the Google antitrust trial in the past 24 hours:
Google CEO Sundar Pichai testified on Wednesday that Google faces "fierce competition" in the search market, and that its deals with phone makers and other companies are designed to benefit consumers. He also denied that Google has a monopoly in search.
Justice Department presents evidence of Google's dominance. The Justice Department presented evidence on Wednesday that shows Google has a dominant market share in search, and that it has used its power to stifle competition. The government also presented evidence that Google has paid billions of dollars to Apple and other phone makers to make Google the default search engine on their devices.
Google seeks to dismiss the case. Google filed a motion on Wednesday to dismiss the case, arguing that the Justice Department has failed to prove that Google has a monopoly or that it has abused its market power.
Other notable developments from the past 24 hours:
Judge Amit Mehta ruled that the Justice Department can post exhibits from the trial online once they've been shown in court. This ruling will make it easier for the public to follow the trial and to understand the evidence that is being presented.
Google and the Justice Department agreed to a process for notifying each other before posting exhibits online. This process is designed to protect confidential information.
Judge Mehta chided the Justice Department for posting exhibits online without notifying him first. He said that both sides should be in a position to post exhibits as soon as it is reasonable to do so.
The Google antitrust trial is scheduled to last for several more weeks. It is one of the most important antitrust cases in decades, and it could have a major impact on the future of the tech industry.

The Justice Department filed its antitrust case against Google in October 2020. The lawsuit alleges that Google has abused its dominance in the search market by engaging in a variety of anticompetitive practices, including:
Paying billions of dollars to Apple and other phone makers to make Google the default search engine on their devices
Preventing competing search engines from accessing Google's search data
Copying features from competing search engines and then blocking those competitors from accessing Google's features
Google has denied all of the allegations in the lawsuit. The company argues that it is not a monopolist and that its practices are pro-competitive. Google also argues that the Justice Department's lawsuit is politically motivated.
The outcome of the Google antitrust trial is uncertain. If the Justice Department wins, it could lead to a major restructuring of Google's search business. It could also lead to new regulations for the tech industry.
