The (European) Commission can confirm that it has received three complaints against Google which it is examining. The Commission has not opened a formal investigation for the time being, the EU executive said in a statement.
The Commission did not identify the companies.
Google said earlier on Wednesday that British price comparison site Foundem, French legal search engine ejustice.fr and Microsoft Corp- owned Ciao from Bing had complained to the Commission regarding its practices.
