I must have been over-optimistic when talking, a few days ago, of “the end of an enforcement paradigm”:

Last week, the Commission

1. opened a formal investigation against Google against what looks like a classic “secondary line injury” abusive discrimination case.

2. raided a bunch of pharma companies, as in the good old days of the Kroes mandate.

Now, Google has already made clear it was willing to cooperate. The case will most likely follow the Article 9 road, which may confirm my point.
