It was only a matter of time, I've said it all along. The message was on the wall since the Florida update and now the FTC & regulators in Europe are going to rip Google a new one.
This case is nothing like the Microsoft case. While Microsoft was directly competing and disadvantaging a small number of software & computer hardware companies. Google are directly competing with the entire webmasters community, travel, media, entertainment & software industries (I probably missed a few more industries) as well as many many millions of other businesses world wide. A massive abuse of power on a scale never seen before.
The outcome of this enquiry is going to be a game changer and is going to send a clear signal to all the other search engines thinking of going down that same path.
Time to pay for your disgusting abuse of power Google!
