MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 14th March, 2019) Google said on Thursday that it will change some of its terms and conditions of service after the South Korean antitrust regulator, the Fair Trade Commission (FTC), made the first-ever corrective recommendation to the company, local media reported on Thursday.

Yonhap news agency reported that the FTC called on Google to inform its users about the most important changes of the terms of service, noting that corrections should not take effect immediately, as it was unclear whether it would be in favor of users.

The FTC also opposed users' comprehensive granting of a transferable license with the right to sub-license to YouTube, Google's video sharing platform.

Google said that it was ready to correct its terms and conditions of service that the FTC did not agree with and was willing to further cooperate with the South Korean antitrust regulator on adjusting them, according to the news agency.

The FTC required Google to act on its recommendations within 60 days after the regulators' notification.
