EU: Google Has "Weeks" To Address Concerns About Search Rankings, Advertising

From the Independent: After a lengthy investigation, the European Union Commission in charge of antitrust matters is giving Google "weeks" to address EU concerns about whether the search company giant abuses its position in delivering search results to place those which favor it higher in the rankings than those that favor its competitors. Other issues of concern to the EU include Google's possible control of advertising by its partners. Google's failure to address EU's objections successfully could mean high fines for the company. More here from Fox News.  Link to statement, May 21, 2012, of JoaquĆ­n Almunia Vice President of the European Commission on the Google antitrust investigation.
