South Korean Search Engines File Complaint Against Google

The two biggest Internet search engines in South Korea filed a complaint with the Fair Trade Commission, charging that Google was blocking the installation of their services on smartphones preloaded with Google’s Android operating system. The NHN Corporation, which owns Naver, the largest search portal, and Daum, the No. 2 portal, asked South Korea’s trade commission to investigate whether Google had improperly maneuvered to have Android preinstalled on most smartphones being sold in the country.
