Concerns Linger over Google-DoubleClick
EU regulators appear likely to approve Google's takeover unconditionally, but digital privacy advocates remain firmly opposed.

Normally in such cases, the European Commission sends the given firms a list of formal objections with at least eight weeks' notice before a deadline in order to give the companies enough time to respond.
