EU: Our Internet Skills Are Teh Suck. Get Out Yanqui!

The European Commission has never ordered the break-up of any company for anti-competitive practices.

Kurt Lauk, the head of the pro-business wing of Germany’s conservative party CDU, which is also Schwab’s party, criticized the proposal to break up Google.

“Instead of exploiting the opportunities of the Web, some lawmakers in the European Parliament are nursing their phobias,” he told Saturday’s edition of German paper Handelsblatt.

“Threatening Google and other large Internet companies who are in fierce competition with each other, is a loser’s debate,” Lauk was quoted as saying.
