Canadian Competition Bureau closes Google probe

Wednesday 20 April 2016 | 09:37 CET | News
The Canadian Competition Bureau has closed its investigation into allegations of anti-competitive conduct by Google in its online search, search advertising and display advertising services in Canada. The Bureau found evidence supporting the allegation that the company used anti-competitive clauses in AdWords API terms and conditions. Google removed these clauses in 2013 in response to similar concerns raised by the US FTC. The Bureau did not find sufficient evidence of anti-competitive conduct with respect to other allegations.
