Antitrust. Basically trying to prevent google from becoming a monopoly. But with the amount of competition, I doubt it will go anywhere. If they couldn't get google for its search engine, I don't think they can get them for the maps.

I originally thought that the next step would be to move the corporation out of Israel but just last month they said that isn't going to happen.
