U.S. antitrust enforcers are asking questions about Google’s settlement
with publishers over its book-scanning project, representatives for
Consumer Watchdog and the American Antitrust Institute said. Consumer Watchdog, a Santa Monica, Calif.-based consumer group, spent

to discuss their concerns, John Simpson, a consumer advocate at the
group, said in an interview.
