ROME (Reuters) – Italy’s antitrust said Wednesday it was probing Google GOOGL.O for possible abuse of dominance in the Italian display advertising market.
The regulator said that thanks to its position in the online advertising market, the company “discriminatively uses huge amounts of data, collected through its own applications, preventing other competing operators from competing effectively.” .
The authority added that it had carried out inspections in some Google offices on Tuesday, together with the Italian financial police.
