Google and EU Said To Be In Resolution Talks [reuters.com]
Google and European Union regulators are in early talks to resolve an antitrust probe against the Internet's dominant search engine, a source familiar with the case said on Monday. A deal could avert a lengthy battle and possible fine for the U.S.-based company.

The European Commission opened an investigation into Google last November after three complainants accused it of abusing its position by demoting rival sites in search results and giving preference to its own services.

"There is some interest from both sides, some tentative discussions in resolving the issue, but no really concrete proposals on the table," the source told Reuters.
