+ - EU Antitrust Chief: Google "Diverting Traffic" & Will Be Forced To Change->

Submitted by Dupple
Dupple (1016592) writes "It looks like the EU is coming close to a decision regarding its investigation of Google according to the FT and Search Engine Land

While saying he’s “still investigating,” the head of the European Union’s antitrust regulatory body has told the Financial Times that he’s convinced Google is “diverting traffic” and that it will be forced to change its results.

From the FT interview:

“We are still investigating, but my conviction is [Google] are diverting traffic,” Mr Almunia told the Financial Times, referring to Google’s preferential treatment of its own vertical search services.

That’s Joaquin Almunia, who has been leading the EU’s investigation into charges that Google is acting anti-competitively with its search listings. Alumnia also said he felt there was an “abuse” of Google’s dominant position in search."
