The European Union announced plans Wednesday to charge Google with violating antitrust laws by using its dominant position in the search engine market to favor its own services over those of its rivals. The Financial Times had details of the expected action in its Wednesday edition, noting the EU’s move could eventually force the search giant “to change its business model fundamentally and pay hefty fines.” Brussels will also investigate whether Google’s smartphone software Android forces phone companies to favor the U.S. company’s own applications and products.
