Google Tells US Senate It Plays Fair

In written testimony to a Senate antitrust panel where he will testify Wednesday afternoon, Eric Schmidt, Google's chairman, describes the search giant as a company facing fierce competition on many fronts, a relentless innovator in a dynamic industry and a creation of the open Internet so consumers can easily switch to competing services.
Google generates wealth for itself, he writes, but even more in total for small businesses across America. And he portrays the Federal Trade Commission's antitrust investigation of Google, begun earlier this year, as largely the result of complaints by disgruntled competitors.
