Microsoft-Yahoo search deal approved [news.bbc.co.uk]
Microsoft's plans to buy Yahoo's internet search and search advertising businesses have been cleared by both European and US regulators.
The European Commission ruled that the deal "would not significantly impede effective competition".
Under the deal, Yahoo's website will use Microsoft's Bing search engine, and the two firms will share the revenues.
