EU Google investigation: Adequate answers still not found. BEUC files complaint asserting consumer interest

The European Consumer Organisation has stepped up its involvement in the European Commission’s antitrust investigation into how Google Inc. puts its preferred services atop search results while demoting rivals, particularly in price comparison searches. Currently an ‘interested party’, essentially having observer status, BEUC has today applied to be a formal complainant.

The European Commission has recently signalled its willingness to settle on the basis of Google’s suggested remedies, but BEUC believes consumer concerns have not been suitably addressed.
