Google Rejects EU Antitrust Charges

I'm not sure what took Google so long to formally reject the EU's antitrust charges but the gauntlet has been thrown down and the search giant will move forward defending itself against the European Commission.

Google has always worked to improve its services, creating new ways to provide better answers and show more useful ads. We’ve taken seriously the concerns in the European Commission’s Statement of Objections (SO) that our innovations are anti-competitive. The response we filed today shows why we believe those allegations are incorrect, and why we believe that Google increases choice for European consumers and offers valuable opportunities for businesses of all sizes.
