BRUSSELS — The European Union’s antitrust chief on Wednesday formally accused Google of abusing its dominance in web searches to the detriment of competitors and began official proceedings into whether its Android smartphone software forces phone makers to favor the company’s own services and applications.布鲁塞尔——欧盟反垄断最低官员周三月指控谷歌(Google)利用其在网络搜寻方面的主导地位,伤害竞争对手,并将就Android智能手机软件否强迫手机制造商指责谷歌自身服务和应用于的作法驳回诉讼。“If the investigation confirmed our concerns, Google would have to face the legal consequences and change the way it does business in Europe,” said Margrethe Vestager, the European Union competition commissioner.“如果调查结果证实了我们的担忧,谷歌将被迫面对法律后果,并且转变它在欧洲的商业模式,”欧盟竞争事务专员玛格丽特·韦斯塔格尔(Margrethe Vestager)说道。The abuse charge focused on accusations that Google diverts traffic from its rivals to favor its own products and services, particularly websites for shopping. That led the European Commission to issue a set of formal charges, known as a statement of objections.指控主要集中于在谴责谷歌从竞争对手分流流量,偏向其自身产品和服务,特别是在是购物网站。

这造成欧盟委员会公布了一套被称作异议声明的月指控。A large number of online operators have complained about Google in other areas, like travel and mapping. Ms. Vestager said that the inquiry might eventually expand beyond shopping sites.许多在线运营商早已责怪过谷歌在旅游和地图等其他领域的作法。韦斯塔格尔说道调查或将最后扩展到购物网站以外的领域。


The commission also said it was stepping up a separate investigation into whether phone makers that agree to use Android — and that also want Google applications like YouTube — face contractual requirements to place those applications and other Google-branded applications in prominent positions on a mobile device.委员会还称之为,其正在强化一项独立国家调查,针对表示同意用于Android系统并期望用于YouTube等谷歌应用于的手机制造商,调查否不存在合约拒绝它们在移动设备的明显方位摆放谷歌品牌应用于。
