Report: E.U. To Issue 400 Google With 400 Page Statement of Objections [ft.com]

The European Commission (EC) is expected to issue a statement of objections (SO) spanning more than 400 pages that will spell-out allegations of Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) abuse of dominance early next year, sources close to the case told dealReporter.

The EC launched an antitrust investigation into Google’s alleged abuse of dominance in the online search market last November, following complaints from search engines Foundem, eJustice and Ciao!

One source close to the case noted that it is not surprising that the SO will be lengthy given the level of complexity of this case and, indeed, the number of complainants. It may also indicate that the EC is preparing for a decision of a similar length, the source added. The file is actually a combination of several cases as Google is being blamed for multiple and multifaceted abuses, another source close indicated. All of those cases could count for a couple of hundreds of pages each.
