  1. ‘Concern’ Rises on EU Bid to Break Up Google

    The U.S. to the European Parliament: Back off. That’s the word coming down from the Americans as certain continental legislators call for Google’s breakup on antitrust grounds. Parliament can’t force Google apart on it’s own, but a vote could put political pressure on the European Commission, which is also investigating the Silicon Valley giant. The Europeans fear Google’s domination of all things Internet is rife for abuse against competitors. Potentially more dangerous might be the precedent set by going after the Googleplex.
