EU Announces New Antitrust Charges Against Google

Margrethe Vestager, European Union's competition chief, announced a new round of antitrust charges against Google — the third set since early 2015 — claiming that some of the company’s advertising products had restricted consumer choice. The efforts are part of her continuing push to rein in Google’s activities in the EU, where the Silicon Valley company has captured roughly 90 percent of the region’s online search market.
