India Launches Antitrust Probe of Google

The investigation is focusing on the company's AdWords advertising service.

The Wall Street Journal: The U.S. and the E.U. have previously launched antitrust investigations of Google; now India is getting in on the act too. The Competition Commission of India is looking into allegations of anti-competitive practices related to Google AdWords, but the agency says the investigation could spread to other products and services as well.

If the commission finds that Google has engaged in anti-competitive practices, it could order the company to change the way it does business and/or levy fines of up to 10 percent of company revenues.
