Almunia Says EU Probe on Google Patents Differs From U.S.

European Union regulators continue to probe Google Inc. over Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc.’s use of injunctions to prevent rivals using key patents, despite the end of a similar U.S. case, EU Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia said today.

“The situation in the European market and in the cases we are dealing with in Europe is not the same,” Almunia told reporters after an event in London.
