http://techcrunch.com – Europe’s Competition Commissioner has indicated he is very likely to ask Google for more concessions as part of the EC’s ongoing investigation into Mountain View’s search and advertising practices. Google submitted proposals to the Commission to allay their concerns back in February. At the time the EU said discussions were “ongoing with Google” and would not put a timeframe on how long the process was likely to play out.  Now, according to Reuters, Commissioner Joaquin Almunia has suggested Google has not done enough to allay the Commission’s concerns.
