Executive Director Quoted on Google Antitrust Probe in the NY Post

The New York Post is reporting that federal antitrust investigators appear to be focusing on whether Google is pressuring handset makers to pre-load phones with its own applications.

Executive Director Geoffrey Manne was quoted in the report, saying the FTC would need to show customer harm in favoring a site like Google-owned Zagat over Yelp.

My analysis is, it is not clear there is any consumer harm. Even if there is not clear benefit, where is the harm?
