Can you be more specific?

Are you saying the govt asking companies to sell some of their parts? Or
asking big tech specifically?

> The UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has asked Meta (formerly
> Facebook) to sell the GIF database and search engine Giphy, a company that
> Meta acquired about a year and a half ago. The competition regulator
> decided that Facebook’s acquisition of Giphy will “reduce competition”
> between social media platforms and “that the deal has already removed Giphy
> as a potential challenger in the display advertising market.”
