EU Still Talking with Google About Antitrust

European Union authorities are still in talks with Google Inc. about alleged antitrust practices in its Internet-search business and have received proposals from the company to address their concerns, said EU Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia. Should Google's proposals fail to address the issues raised by the EU, authorities will be forced to take some action, Mr. Almunia said in a speech at Fordham University School of Law in New York.
