BRUSSELS — Google made a second attempt last week to settle a three-year-old antitrust case with the European Union, the company said Monday, but neither side released details of the offer and rivals continued to call for the US technology giant to cede more control of its Internet search and advertising business.
The latest offer by Google was confirmed in Italy on Sunday by Joaquín Almunia, the EU’s competition commissioner. Almunia has been seeking a settlement with the company since the early stages of the case, which formally began in 2010.
The case revolves around claims that Google has abused its dominance in the Internet search and advertising field by, among other things, favoring its own products and services in search results. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
