Statement by Commissioner Vestager on Google
European Commission - PRESS RELEASES - Press release - Statement by Commissioner Vestager on Google antitrust investigations at the European Parliament (ECON committee meeting): ""Our current investigations involving Google are among the most discussed in the media. The sheer amount of data controlled by Google gives rise to a series of societal challenges. Privacy is one of the most pressing concerns. Media pluralism is another. Not all of these challenges are primarily economic in nature and not all of them are competition related. So many of the Google related concerns voiced in the public debate cannot be addressed in our investigations into the company’s alleged anti-competitive practices. We will have to limit ourselves to what we identify as competition problems. " 'via Blog this'
