Anti-Trust Case Against Google

The European Union is expected to set out later the action it will take against Google over alleged anti-competitive behavior, BBC reported. Its competition commissioner is likely to outline her intentions against the search giant following a five-year EU investigation into the company. Reports suggest Margrethe Vestager will issue a "statement of objections". That would escalate a process that could ultimately lead to billions of euros of fines. But Google told employees on Tuesday that it had a "very strong case" and is expected to defend itself robustly in what could become one of the most contentious antitrust cases since the EU took on Microsoft 10 years ago. The Commission is responding to complaints that Google, which accounts for more than a 90% of EU-based web searches, favors its own products in search engine results.
