SAN FRANCISCO/FRANKFURT (Reuters) – European Union antitrust regulators are preparing to step up investigations of Google Incs practices on several fronts and are likely to revise certain terms of a settlement involving its search engine that was proposed earlier this year, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday.

Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia said at the time he would accept Googles concessions without consulting complainants, prompting a furious response.
