News Corp has expanded its complaint against Google to EU antitrust regulators investigating whether the Internet search engine abused its dominance, a person familiar with the matter said on Monday.
News Corp, controlled by media mogul Rupert Murdoch and the owner of the Wall Street Journal and publisher HarperCollins, took its grievance to the European Commission two years ago.
