EU accepts latest Google anti-trust remedies
(02-05 19:27)

The European Union's antitrust watchdog says Google is offering new and far-reaching concessions to address allegations it is abusing its dominant position in Internet searches.
The EU's executive said Wednesday that Google guarantees it will display results from three competitors in a similar way whenever it promotes its own specialized search services like Google shopping.
Antitrust Commissioner Joaquin Almunia says this "provides users with a real choice between competing services presented in a comparable way.''
He says Google's offer of concessions, its third, will be sent to the plaintiffs for evaluation before the Commission makes a final decision on a settlement in the case opened in late 2010.
Google has a market share of about 90 percent of Internet searches in Europe, compared with around 70 percent in the US. --AP
