Should Google be broken up into several companies?

A watchdog groups wants government action against Google. Are they out of their minds, or do they have a point?

A Santa Monica, Calif.-based consumer watchdog group called, er, "Consumer Watchdog" intends to ask the U.S. Justice Department tomorrow during a press conference to investigate and take antitrust action against Google. The action they're calling for includes breaking up the company into "baby Googs."

The group is concerned about Google's privacy policies, and the favoring of Google online services in Google search results, among other things.

A lawyer named Gary Reback will reportedly be involved in the announcement. You may know him as the attorney to headed antitrust action against Microsoft years ago.

What do you think? Is it time for the government to investigate Google for antitrust violations?
