Google Makes Nice to European Union

Mountain View, Calif.-based Internet search engine behemoth Google, Inc., this week extended an olive branch to the European Union, offering a proposal to allay antitrust concerns, the Associated Press reported.

According to the AP article, Google proposed clearly labeling search results so that European users could differentiate between Google-sponsored search results and natural search results. The 27-nation EU Commission said Google also would display competitors' links alongside its own YouTube and Google Maps services.

The EU has been a thorn in Google's side for more than three years, investigating the company's potential abuse of its dominant market position in the Internet search field (see "TUOL" post 7/7/10).
