Google is expected to receive unconditional approval from European Union regulators next week for its $3.1 billion takeover of ad firm DoubleClick, people familiar with the situation said.

The approval has long been expected because the European Commission decided in January not to object formally to the transaction. The Commission, the EU's top competition watchdog, has never rejected a deal without sending formal objections.

Is it strange that I find it slightly awkward that the EU has to approve US takeovers?

Google has a lot of business operating in the EU, if they didn't then they would not need approval...
