Google close to resolving anti-trust differences

Written by Nick Farrell



EU might have a deal


EU regulators have indicated that they like what Google is offering them in a settlement into alleged anti-competitive behaviour. The European Commission said there was a "level of good understanding" with Google with its latest proposals.

These proposals will form the basis of discussions before the Commission makes a final decision whether to accept them. Google revised initial proposals to cover computers, tablets and mobile devices, which the EU wanted. So far the Commission is not telling what Google had proposed but did say that the concessions formed the basis of further technical discussions.

If Google pulls the negotiations off, it could avoid the kind of lengthy battle that plagued Microsoft in the last decade and ended in more than a billion euros in fines. EU competition policy spokesman Antoine Colombani said he could confirm we have reached a good level of understanding with Google and there will soon be discussions at technical level. He hoped this process will lead to remedies addressing EU concerns.
