EU Parliament Wants To Split Up Google

The EU parliament and Google have not been getting along for quite some time now as they are looking into complaints from competitors that the search giant is abusing the dominant position in the market. Google has 90% market share in Europe and in September we reported on Germany’s justice minister Heiko Maas, said in an interview with Financial Times, that Google needs to be “more transparent” about how they create the search engine rankings.

Well, it just got even more ridiculous. According to the Financial Times, the EU parliament now wants to pressure antitrust regulators to look into splitting up Google. The final details are being worked and the parliament will vote on this Thursday.

Google has not commented yet but we would imagine this wouldn’t go down well.
