Google-Yahoo merger is dangerous for Web-based Businesses?

There’s a little bit of good news for Yahoo and Google stocks holders today. It seems that both parties are busy talking with US Justice Department in a collaborative effort to avoid the antitrust suit that has put a dent to their search partnership plan.

Michael Arrington from TechCrunch who has access to the full story at the Wall Street Journal said:
Concessions reportedly being discussed include “capping the volume of Google ads Yahoo would use, assurances that Yahoo would continue to compete in search ads, and a reporting mechanism to ensure compliance.” The article also says the government is looking to impose price constraints to ward off increases in advertising rates after the deal is implemented.
