Google’s proposal aimed at dodging a fine from the European Commission for allegedly breaking competition rules doesn’t include any changes to how search results are presented on the Google.com domain.
European Commission sources confirmed on Monday that although the new remedies were substantially improved from the search giant’s last offering, they still do not cover searches made through its .com domain. The Commission takes the view that less than 10 percent of search carried out in the European Union is via the google.com website. The remedies do cover search via in-browser search bars and voice queries. European Antitrust Investigation Does Not Include Search On Google.com [pcworld.com]
