4/15/15: Shares of Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG, GOOGL) slipped 0.2% on news that the EU has formally accused the tech giant of anticompetitive practices. These charges include habits like pushing its own software and products to its search engine users. The E.U.'s competition commissioner said investigators are particularly focused on the Google Android operating system. If found guilty of violating antitrust laws, the company could face fines up to 6 billion euros, or roughly $6.4 billion. However, a settlement would be more likely.
