Google Chief Page Said to Meet FTC Over Antitrust Probe

Google Inc. Chief Executive Officer Larry Page met with U.S. Federal Trade Commission officials today in Washington as the agency moves to wrap up its 19-month investigation of the company’s business practices, according to a person familiar with the discussions.

Google is seeking to persuade the FTC it hasn’t broken antitrust laws and that any final agreement with the agency shouldn’t be bound by a consent decree, according to the person and two others, who declined to be identified because the negotiations aren’t public.
