Google has written to the European Commission’s (EC) Competition Commissioner with proposals to change its search engine. Google has been under the watchful eye of the EC for a couple of years after its rivals complained of anti-competitive behaviour.
The Competition Commissioner has said that, if Google does not change its practices, the EC may issue a large fine of up to 10% of its global turnover. The EC’s investigation has focused on alleged practices such as Google favouring its own services in its search results and the way Google displays content from other websites.
The details of Google’s offer have not yet been released to the public.
