google being the search engine for 95% of european users is not the issue.
there is rather a problem with two components:
1. google abusing this position by throwing around free services that have nothing to do with its core business, thereby destroying legit competition. as their free services don't bring in any money, they are completely subsidized by adwords.
2. the double-dependency of businesses on google a) to bring in the visitors and b) to monetize these visitors through a deal on contextual advertising with the same company.
1. prohibit google from cross-subsidizing its market-distorting endeavors.
2. break google up into a search company and an advertising company.
