Curated by

 

The company’s comments came after the European Commission in April accused it of distorting internet search results to favor its shopping service, harming both rivals and consumers. The comments coincide with the company’s 150-page submission countering the Commission’s charges. Commission spokesman Ricardo Cardoso confirmed the receipt of Google’s response to the charge sheet.

 

 

  • Walker said the regulator’s demand that Google give equal treatment to its rivals was “peculiar and problematic” and only justifiable if the company provided an essential service like an electricity company.
  • Google’s foes were scathing of the company’s arguments.
  • It surveyed prices of 63 items in Britain’s consumer inflation basket, comparing prices on Google Shopping with those of the first-placed retailer in normal search results.
