Google's victory as FTC clears company

SEARCH engine Google has claimed a major victory in the US after regulators ended their investigation into the internet company.

US regulators concluded that it had not manipulated its search results to hurt rivals.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) did, however, win promises from Google that it would end the practice of "scraping" reviews and other data from rivals' websites for its own products.
