06:02 EDTMSFT, GOOGMicrosoft: Still seeking resolution to search competition issues
In a blog post, Dave Heiner, Microsoft's (MSFT) deputy general counsel, says "The European Commission has stated publicly that Google (GOOG) must address four areas of concern regarding its business practices, or else it will face enforcement action. We understand that the European Commission and Google are working toward a binding, enforceable legal order that would address these competition law concerns. Separately, news reports suggest that Google will finally agree to live up to its promises to make its standard essential patents available to all on reasonable terms. Unfortunately, this agreement appears to be less demanding than the pledge the U.S. Department of Justice received from Apple (AAPL) and Microsoft nearly a year ago...We continue to be dogged by an issue we had hoped would be resolved by now: Google continues to prevent Microsoft from offering consumers a fully featured YouTube app for the Windows Phone...Hopefully, Google will wake up to a New Year with a resolution to change its ways and start to conform with the antitrust laws. If not, then 2013 hopefully will be the year when antitrust enforcers display the resolve that Google continues to lack." Reference Link

17:48 EDTGOOGNews Corp opposed Google EC settlement offer
Early last week, in a letter to European Commissioner for Competition Joaquín Almunia, News Corp (NWS, NWSA) CEO Robert Thomson opposed Google’s (GOOG) settlement offer with the European Commission, or EC, saying the internet giant is “willing to exploit its dominant market position to stifle competition.” Thomson said News Corp also opposed the proposed five year term of a settlement, noting that “five years is an eternity in internet time.” Citing Google’s “egregious aggregation” of content, Mr. Thomson said that, along with serious commercial damage, there is a “profound social cost” to Google’s actions. “The internet should be a canvas for freedom of expression and for high quality content of enduring value. Undermining the basic business model of professional content creators will lead to a less informed, more vexatious level of dialogue in our society.” "Your decision to reconsider Google's settlement offer comes at a crucial moment in the history of the free flow of information and of a healthy media in Europe and beyond," Mr. Thomson wrote.
