Google is going to have to change its search results in Europe, Alex Barker and Richard Waters at the FT report.

How much it will have to change its search results is unclear though. It might just have to change the presentation of its own services.

Google has been under antitrust investigation in the European Union. Joaquin Almunia, who is leading the investigation for the EU tells Barker and Waters, Google is "diverting traffic" to its own properties away from rivals.

After seeing how Google was able to march an army of representatives at the U.S. investigation team, keeping them extremely busy, some aren't waiting for the same to happen in Europe apparently.

Google was just sued for helping its own businesses by steering customers away from competitors. [eweek.com...]

Relevant sections of Google's quarterly earnings reports suggest that there is truth in the claims, Google was up significantly last quarter while competitors were not so fortunate.

The plot thickens.
