EU demands Google do more to settle antitrust case

Juergen Baetz (via AP/ SMH) | May 29, 2013
The European Union's antitrust chief said Tuesday that Google will have to offer more changes to the way it displays search results to settle a pending case.

Almunia voiced confidence that the Google case can be resolved by year's end, provided the company accepts the Commission's new requests.

A settlement would remove the threat of a fine against Google and it would not constitute a legal acknowledgment of wrongdoing.

Separately, the Commission is also looking into a complaint that Google allegedly violated competition rules through its Android mobile phone operating system, but has not made a decision yet whether to open a formal investigation, Almunia said.
