- So, the EU has launched an antitrust investigation into Google. One wonders, though, if the EU has the balls to look into two much more disturbing antitrust problems in its own backyard: The anticompetitive and abusive behavior of Pearson (a UK-based conglomerate) and Wolters Kluwer (an Anglo-Dutch conglomerate) in scientific and academic journals. Or, for that matter, the behavior of other EU-based conglomerates in publishing.
And maybe, as Professor Crawford notes, US antitrust authorities should pay more attention to Comcast... particularly since that's how Google results get to a third of the country or so.
