So what? I can whip up a search engine right now that doesn't rank specific sites well and that's my prerogative
But you wouldn't have a dominant market position and therefore that would be fine.
A market position like google has (over 90% of searches in the UK, and such a habit among web users that many just type in company names rather than type in the url) is a very dangerous thing. and while I agree that they are probably right to rank sites above directories, they are effectively a benign dictator of the web. The EU are right to investigate, regardless of who the complainants are.
