Rupert Murdoch's News Corp has called for Google to be broken up in Australia, the latest salvo in a battle between the corporate media giants.

In a petition to Australian regulators, News Corp's local subsidiary complained that "Google enjoys overwhelming market power in both online search and ad tech services."

Going a step further, the company accused Google of "abusing its dominant position to the detriment of consumers, advertisers and publishers."

Contrarian view: Warren has proved that she / her team think they can help themselves to other people's intellectual property (Facebook logo etc.)

If you want to advertise on [your platform of choice], make sure you understand their policies and respect them. Don't disregard the policies then cry foul when they're enforced.

Yeah, they pretty much f### up everyone's ads, at least at some point. No one is immune.
