EU tries to force Google change

SEARCH engine giant Google faces sanctions from Brussels unless it changes the way it presents its search results in Europe.

The European Union’s competition chief Joaquin Almunia last night said that he believed Google was diverting web traffic – giving unfair promotion to its own web services. “The strong position they have in the general search market....I fear there is an abuse of this dominant position,” Almunia told the Financial Times.
