EU`s Antitrust Charges Against Google

The common complain seems to be universal search:

" With universal search, we`re attempting to break down the walls that traditionally separated our various search properties and integrate the vast amounts of information available into one simple set of search results. "

  • Edwin Jonk: The common complain seems to be universal search:

    " With universal search, we're attempting to break down the walls that traditionally separated our various search properties and integrate the vast amounts of information available into one simple set of search results. "
  • Micah Fisher-Kirshner: I think this is a key point about Europe and really for any company that essentially is a monopoly (purely from winning the market to such an extent not from doing anything nefarious).

    [T]he twist with Google is its massive marketshare in Europe. It has 90% or more of the general search share in most ;European countries. With such a monopoly, it might have to act differently than others, especially if its behavior is deemed to harm competition.

    <b>Basically:</b> When does something go from being a fair and competitive market to a &quot;dumb pipe&quot; that requires some minimal regulation (like Internet lines)?
