European Parliament Might Call For Google's Break-Up
This is the latest development in an antitrust investigation accusing Google of unfairly prioritizing own products and services in search results.By Evan Thomas | November 22, 2014
Nothing lasts forever — not even Google. According to a new report, European Parliament might propose the search giant be broken up.
Draft legislation spotted by the Financial Times Friday proposes the “unbundling [of] search engines from other commercial services” as a possible way to address Google’s power.
Ars Technica also saw the proposal, and notes the resolution doesn’t mention Google specifically. But the idea of “unbundling search engines” definitely applies to Google, and the company is squarely in European regulators’ sights.
