Hearings on four big IT companies, including Apple and Google, March 30, 12:19 p.m.
Top executives countered that the U.S. congressional hearings were held against four U.S. IT companies, including Apple and Google, which are making huge profits, pointing out that they were unfairly profitable by using their exclusive positions.
The hearing, which was held in the U.S. House of Representatives today, was based on the Antitrust Act of Japan, where Four people, Bezos, CEO of Amazon.com, Cook of Apple, Pichai of Google, and Ceo Zuckerberg of Facebook, were all present online.
Local media say this is the first time the four leaders have attended the hearing at the same time.
In the United States, there has been growing criticism that these giants are using their exclusive positions to prevent proper competition, but Amazon’s chief executive, Bezos, countered that “Amazon’s share is less than 1 percent of the global retail market.”
“In the smartphone market, Samsung and Huawei have been a success, and there has been a lot of competition.’ Apple doesn’t have a dominant share in any market.”
There were criticisms of major IT companies for providing convenience to the opposing Chinese market, and at the hearing, there were questions about wreporting To Google writuting woperation with the Chinese military.
In response, Pichai explained that “China is only participating in a small project on AI=artificial intelligence”, and expressed the idea that the point does not apply.
