Google To License Mobile Patents In FTC Antitrust Settlement

JUST IN: Google is agreeing to license certain patents to mobile phone rivals and stop a practice of including snippets from other websites in its search results, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission says.

These moves are part of a settlement to end a 19-month investigation into the search leader’s business practices, the AP reports. U.S. antitrust regulators say they have found no evidence to claims that Google unfairly favors its own services in search results.
