The Federal Trade Commission has wrapped up its year-or-more long antitrust investigation into Google's search practices and it may sue.
Reuters said last Friday that four out of the five FTC commissioners believe Google illegally abused its power in search at the expense of competitors.
The commissioners will reportedly make a final decision by the end of the year.
Google is alleged to have favored its own products.
It recently paid the FTC $22.5 million for misrepresenting how it collected user data from Apple's Safari browser.
