European Commission Seeks More Info in Google Probe

The European Union is stepping up its probe into allegations that Google Inc. abuses its dominance in advertising contracts with website operators and copies content from rival sites, in a further sign that the U.S. search giant’s travails with Europe’s antitrust regulator are far from over. The European Commission, the bloc’s competition watchdog, has sent out questionnaires to companies requesting more detailed information into Google’s business practices in those areas, according to two documents seen by The Wall Street Journal.
