EU Appoints Tech Experts To Police Google Shopping Resutls

The European Commission will spend up to €10m to appoint a team of expert technology consultants who will track how Google complies with the commission’s demand that it make its results fairer after being fined billion of dollars for "squeezing" out its competitors on Google Shopping, The Telegraph reports. An EU document suggests Google could be on the watch list for up to eight years, if an appeal in the recent case takes three years. Last week, Google was fined the largest antitrust amount every initiated by the EU after a seven-year investigation into claims it had unfairly used its search engine price comparison shopping service.
