As expected, the Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled a hearing to vet the Google-Yahoo online-advertising partnership.
The hearing, appropriately titled "The Google-Yahoo Agreement and the Future of Internet Advertising," will be held July 15.
Committee chairman Herb Kohl (D-Wis.) signaled his plan to scrutinize the deal, saying that it raised "competition concerns.”
No witnesses have been announced.
The deal is also expected to get the once-over Wednesday in Senate Commerce Committee hearing "Privacy Implications of Online Advertising."
