S. Korea anti-trust agency probes Google: report

SEOUL, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 21st july,2016) - South Korea's anti-trust agency is investigating Google for alleged abuse of its market dominance, a report said Thursday, a week after the EU filed anti-trust charges against the US tech giant.

The probe by the South's Fair Trade Commission (FTC) is focused on whether Google is unfairly forcing smartphone makers to use its Android operating system, Yonhap news agency said. Officials from the FTC visited the firm's Seoul office last week for an "on-site inspection," Yonhap added.
