Google finds support in the form of eBay Chief Executive John Donahoe, who has taken the side of the search engine giant in an antitrust case. Donahoe, who said both companies are direct competitors in online shopping, asserted that Brussels “misunderstands how people buy products online,” according to the Financial Times.
