Europe Wants Google to Give Rivals Greater Visibility

Europe’s antitrust authorities have threatened to impose significant fines on Google’s operations on the Continent if the company does not give rivals greater prominence in some search results across the 28-member bloc. The move -- outlined in a so-called statement of objections that was sent to Google in April and now to a number of companies that have balked at Google’s activities in London -- is the latest step in the five-year antitrust case brought by European officials.
