EU Accuses Google of Abuse
Are they feeling lucky? Brussels is charging the company — which accounts for more than 90 percent of EU web searches — with breaching antitrust rules by boosting its own products and services in search results.

The EU’s competition commissioner filed an official complaint today, which could ultimately force Google to change its ways and pay more than $6 billion in fines.
