Google under government investigation for online pharmacy ads
Jia Lynn Yang and Rob Stein
"Government officials are investigating whether Google profited by displaying ads from illegal online pharmacies, federal regulators said Thursday.
"An explosion of online companies claiming to sell prescription drugs has forced the search giant into what it has called a cat-and-mouse game to sort out legitimate retailers from frauds.
"Yet it appears Google would still be liable for running ads from so-called rogue pharmacies. The company said in an earnings filing this week that it had set aside $500 million equivalent to about one-fifth of the profits it made during the last quarter of 2010 toward a settlement relating to a Justice Department investigation into its advertising practices."
