EU Antitrust Chief Wants Google Settlement

The European Union’s antitrust chief said he’d rather settle an antitrust probe over claims Google Inc. discriminates against rivals than pursue an enforcement action against the world’s largest Web-search engine. “In these fast-moving markets with new activities, new products and new services, I prefer to find remedies as soon as possible and this is easier,” EU Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia said in an interview, referring to a settlement.
