Google formally rejects EU antitrust charges

The U.S. technology giant's rebuttal in the shopping case came six years after the European Commission opened an investigation prompted by complaints from rivals such as Microsoft and a host of European and U.S. rivals. It also issued a separate charge sheet against its online search advertising product AdSense for Search at the same time.
