iComp writes "The two-year long competition probe of Google's search business in Europe is poised to continue at least into the second half of this year, commissioner Joaquin Almunia has confirmed.
"We can reach an agreement after the summer break. We can envisage this as a possible deadline," he said on Friday, according to Reuters.
The Register asked the commissioner's office what this meant in practice. A spokeswoman told us:
Vice President Almunia only gave an indication of what the possible timing could be if the proposals by Google address our concerns. We are still analysing these proposals, as the VP said."
