Does Google harm local search rivals? EU antitrust regulators ask
EU antitrust regulators have asked Google`s rivals if the internet search giant unfairly demotes local search competitors, according to a questionnaire seen by Reuters, a move which could lead to a fourth case against the Alphabet unit.
Google has been fined a total $7.7 billion in the last 17 months for favouring its comparison shopping service and for using its dominant Android mobile operating system to reinforce its search engine market power. Image source: Reuters
