Google Faces Antitrust Complaints in EU

It looks like Europe is one of the more popular places to start any antitrust proceedings. After Intel's massive fine last year, it's now Google's turn to be under the spotlight. Admittedly, these are just complaints from certain parties and not a full-blown investigation.
