DOJ sues to block Visa’s $5.3 billion purchase of Plaid Inc.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Department of Justice sued payment processing giant Visa Inc. on Thursday to block the company’s purchase of financial technology startup Plaid, calling it a monopolistic takeover of a potential competitor to Visa’s ubiquitous payments network.

The lawsuit, filed in the Northern District of California, seeks to stop Visa’s purchase of Plaid, which at $5.3 billion would have been the second-largest acquisition in the company’s history, second only to Visa’s buyout of Visa Europe a few years ago.

Plaid provides the infrastructure to allow consumers and businesses to pay directly from their bank account. Services like Venmo, SoFi, Stripe and TransferWise all use Plaid as a way for consumers to send money from their bank accounts to another party without having to use the debit card infrastructure that’s largely controlled by Visa and its competitor Mastercard.

Visa earns a small fee from every transaction that is

Australian law couldn’t block Google’s YouTube and DoubleClick purchases: ACCC chair


Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) chair Rod Sims has called on Australia to “rise up” and work out the level of economic concentration it is willing to live with.

Speaking before the House of Representatives Economics Standing Committee on Friday, Sims said competition regulators around the world have faced criticism for allowing Google to consolidate its market position with the past purchases of Android, DoubleClick, and YouTube.

“There’s been a lot of criticism of regulators around the world for allowing those acquisitions, but at the time they occurred, certainly our law, I believe, wouldn’t have allowed us to stop them,” he said.

“I guess what we’re trying to get do with the debate is ‘Can we just rise up a bit and just think about what regime we want, where we really want to set the dial to make sure that we don’t end up with such a concentrated

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – Nokia on Tuesday sought to enforce an injunction against Lenovo, the world’s biggest PC maker, to block sales of its products in Germany after violation of a video encoding patent.

A Munich court ruled on Sept. 30 that Hong Kong-listed Lenovo infringed one of Nokia’s patents, ordered an injunction and a recall of products from retailers, among other things.

Nokia launched its legal battle against Lenovo last year over alleged infringement of 20 patents. The Finnish company has ongoing cases against Lenovo in the United States, Brazil and India, in addition to six cases in Germany.

Lenovo has appealed against the Munich court ruling.

“We believe Nokia has violated its own legal obligations by refusing to license its technology on Fair Reasonable and Non-Discriminatory (FRAND)

Twitter Just Stopped Blocking The Biden Article It Said It Would Block Yesterday

After disallowing the sharing of a link to an unverified New York Post article on its platform, Twitter reversed course and allowed users to post it again on Friday.

The social media network was widely criticized for its decision to block the article, which focused on Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son Hunter. The story relied on a hard drive allegedly provided to the Post by a computer technician, which claimed to detail Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine.

On Wednesday, Twitter announced it had blocked all shares of the Post article, saying this was in line with its policy on hacked material.

Later that day, in a clarification, the company said that the article had violated its rules about disclosing personal and private information and locked several accounts that were sharing it.

Yet another clarification — and a policy update — came late Thursday night. In a Twitter
