European Union Targets Google Tactics
The European Union has Google in its crosshairs. On Wednesday, the EU filed a complaint against the search giant’s shopping service. The European Commission says Google unfairly promotes its own service over competitors, regardless of whether it’s the most “relevant response to the query.”
Regulators are also investigating Google’s Android platform on mobile phones. The legal battle could cost Google billions of dollars, but company executives say they are ready to tell their side of the story. Here & Now’s Peter O’Dowd discusses the case with host Jeremy Hobson.
