ByMichael Weber, CEO hot-map.comThe following questionable or illegal practices are part of my concerns about Google and a possible settlement. They are exemplary of how Google enters and dominates markets.

Brussels, European Parliament, Oct. 1st 2013

Bundling of Google Search and Google Maps

The market dominating Google Search is bundled with Google Maps, thereby unfairly promoting - the at first unknown - Google Maps over all other mapping services, depriving consumers of the choice of searching for locations using Google Search without Google Maps and thereby quickly achieving dominance in this different market as well.
