Headlining that "in Europe, Google prefers to abdicate than to pay!", the French economic paper writes that
in its last offer, the American giant accepted that, while displaying its own service for restaurants, hotels or consumer goods for example, it will also show the services of three competitors, selected with an objective method. The competitors will be displayed in a clearly visible way for the users and similar to the one used by Google, explained the Commission. An independent organisation will verify whether Google respects its commitments.A year ago, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission dropped a similar investigation. The FTC said Google was motivated more by innovation than by trying to stifle competition.
