Giuseppe de Martino, the president of French video platform DailyMotion believes that Google is cheating by serving up YouTube videos (which is owned by Google) in place of DailyMotion content, according to the UK newspaper, The Independent.
Independent reporter Ian Burrell writes:
[De Martino] claims that sometimes when internet users search Google for DailyMotion videos they mysteriously don’t appear – yet YouTube-hosted alternatives appear among results.
In response, Google has denied engaging in this unfair search result practice. De Martino told The Independent, “Nothing has been done for companies like us who are challenging Google’s subsidiaries.” He went on to say, “Europe should be aware the US is ruling the digital world and Europe should react.”
