The European Parliament adopted a report which recommends that Google be restructured.

Though the report was adopted 445-104, it is not a binding one.

The European Commission has two open cases against Google, which will take years to be completed.

The European Parliament just adopted a report which calls for the complete structural separation of Google’s general and specialized search services.

It was around a year ago that the European Commission issued Google a record-high $2.7 billion fine for violating the European Union’s antitrust rules.

The Commission found that Google was giving itself an illegal disadvantage over its competition by displaying Google Shopping results on top while demoting rival websites.
