Re: Curious to see the answer of the EU
If the EU actually wanted to solve this, they'd define a market product data interchange format and exchange. They'd be able to track and kill counterfeiters with it too.
They don't *know* what a fair solution is. They have just declared they will punish Google until, basically, Google make them feel in control again, by providing an unspecified something that's not guaranteed to even exist. Google's only solution may be to *never* integrate specialised search results in general search results, which makes everything dumber, as the future's on the other side of that tech.
Consider how an AI answers "Where's the nearest place to buy a good hammer" and how many competing map, location, shop, products, recommendation engines could be involved in a verbal answer?
