Google miles ahead of sluggish bureaucracy

The European Commission has taken far too long to tackle the problems with Google, the conservative daily Lidové noviny criticises, describing its current decision as unhelpful: "After Wednesday's decision many Europeans will say: at last someone is finally slapping down the big bad Internet monopolist. But unfortunately the Commission isn't tackling the burning issues like protection of the private sphere, data and users. All it's focussing on is whether the competition between the US company and its rivals on the Old Continent is fair. … It may well be that Google is exploiting its dominant market position in the Internet world. … But the EU Commission's inquiry has gone on for four years already. Now sanctions will no doubt follow and then a court battle that goes on for years. Yet the Internet is changing every day. Decisions on five and even ten year-old problems won't help here."
