The European Parliament has voted in favour of breaking Google up, as a solution to complaints that it favours is own services in search results.

Politicians have no power to enforce a break-up, but the landmark vote sends a clear message to European regulators to get tough on the net giant.

I'm glad they're keeping a close watch on these powerful companies, but a break-up?

Good luck with that.

While I agree with you to some extent. I really think we must prevent corporations from getting more powerful than a government.
