‘Microsoft, others in Google+ complaint to EU’

Brussels: Microsoft and several other firms have complained to EU antitrust regulators about Google’s social networking tool, two people familiar with the matter said, in a move that may prompt the EU to broaden its ongoing investigation into Google.

Microsoft and the others expressed their concerns informally, the people said, declining to provide details about the nature of the complaint about Google+ because of the sensitivity of the matter.

The European Commission declined to comment and Microsoft said it would not make any statement about “rumours or speculation".
