I'll be interested to find out what those remedies are going to be.

EU Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia said regulators were as keen as Google to avoid lengthy proceedings due to the fast-moving nature of the technology industry and said that if remedies were offered by Google within the coming weeks, the antitrust investigation could be brought to a close.

"I believe that these fast moving markets would particularly benefit from a quick resolution of the competition issues identified. Restoring competition swiftly to the benefit of users at an early stage is always better than lengthy proceedings," Almunia told a news briefing.

This was started in late 2010 right?

I wonder if you think the situation has gotten better since then. There has been a lot of changes to a lot of their results that has in my opinion made it worse since then. Definitely interesting to see where this goes from here.
