EU’s Almunia Says Could Probe Google’s YouTube Dominance
Europe’s antitrust chief said on Monday he could investigate Google’s YouTube if he saw any attempt by the company to abuse its dominant position in online video searching. The comments by European Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia came as he wraps up a separate case against Google, the world’s most popular search engine, which was triggered by complaints from Microsoft and others. Last week, music trade association Impala asked European Union antitrust regulators to intervene in a row with YouTube over its paid streaming music service, saying some conditions demanded by the company were anti-competitive.
