News Summary: Google competitors push EU's antitrust body to tough action on search engine

Associated Press

PUSHBACK: A coalition of 17 of Google's competitors, which includes Microsoft, urged the European Union's antitrust watchdog to reject the Internet giant's proposed concessions on displaying search results.

BACK STORY: The European Commission has been investigating since 2010 whether Google is abusing its dominant market position and stifling competition. It pointed out several areas of concern, which Google is trying to address by changing the way it displays search results.

COMPLAINT: Competitors say the way Google would label and display its own offerings to distinguish it from rivals' content actually favors Google.
