Motorola Problems (opposite of Solutions) is a US company. Google is a US company.
Why is the EU even getting involved at all? This has nothing to do with them, other than the fact that some of their lobbyists see Apple dollars and that hamstringing this merger would help keep Apple with the upper hand in this patent polka that all the phone companies are forced to play.
Maybe the EU should look at other things like banks, and their problems.
Google has officially asked the EU regulation commission on its statement to the merger.
Even though the commission could not stop them from merging, there could be serious consequences after the merger in the EU member states.
So it is in Google's best interest, to get an OK by the EU.
