If they pulled an Intel and made it so that no other search engine could be set as the default in any browser installed onto said company's devices (phones, laptops, PCs, tablets, etc.) by the company they paid for this, then there will be some trouble for Alphabet's Google division, just as there was for Intel when they got caught making kneecapping agreements with PC and laptop builders. That would be on top of any discovery of search result shenanigans that put Google's chosen results at the top of the list, should that be happening as well.
If the government doesn’t want people to sell search engine defaults. Simply make it illegal. How can you sue the person that paid the highest price for it? Stupid.
