EU To Seek More Google Antitrust Concessions Over Competition Probe

Posted on May 28 2013 - 8:28pm by Editorial Staff


A Reuters report suggests that European Union may demand further Google antitrust concessions which may delay its settling of an on-going three-year long investigation into complaints. It was all started back in 2010 when Google’s rivals and competitors complained to the European executive body about Google allegedly infringing EU antitrust law by abusing its dominance in the search market.

Now, after three long years, EU Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia comes to the point acknowledging critics say that the response is inadequate and Google would be asked almost to improve its proposals. Even, it was only in last month when the search giant was offered its own products in internet search results, which probably will make it easier for advertisers to move to rival platforms.
