Google said in a statement that it welcomed the decision. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, which led the case against Google, said advertisers should still ensure they don't mislead consumers.

"The ACCC took these proceedings to clarify the law relating to advertising practices in the internet age," ACCC Chairman Rod Sims said in a statement. "Specifically, we considered that providers of online content should be accountable for misleading or deceptive conduct when they have significant control over what is delivered."
