It seems Google is making headlines everywhere!
Uh oh, Google's in hot water in Europe.
Comment from an antitrust attorney at Orrick, writing about this in context of the recent FTC decision re Google: "EU competition law is generally more protective of competitors’ interests than U.S. law, which tends to focus more narrowly on competition itself and on consumer welfare." http://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/on-the-ftc-google-settlement-62169/
I still think this is silly; No one is forcing you to use Google's search results. So, Google is getting penalized for promoting their own servers on their OWN search engine. Not their fault other engines don't close to theirs; still people have choices (maybe not good ones) but there are choices.
