Google CEO disses antitrust regulators in his first public appearance in months

Google CEO discusses antitrust regulator issues

Speaking at Google's annual Zeitgeist conference in Paradise Valley, Arizona on Tuesday, Google CEO Larry Page had some things to say about antitrust regulators in both the US and Europe. Page warned about the "over-regulation of the Internet and restriction of what people can do" as big threats to Google's future. Page adds:



That's something I worry about. We don't actually know how the Internet is going to work 10 years from now. So it's kind of, I think, a mistake to start carving out large classes that you don't really understand yet that you don't want to let people do. I think that's the approach a lot of regulators are taking, which I think is sad.


Page does go into more detail in the video above, and the CEO hopes that Google could hopefully successfully cooperate with antitrust regulators to work out their differences.
