I agree. The only monopoly in this instance is the one created by Google becoming the defactor choice of search tool and becoming synonymous with the term "search." Forcing it to advertise competitors seems very odd.

Re: User's choice
For Google it's a good thing that the concession and agreement were reached with EU. It will help to pave the way of Google search business in Europe. I am not sure if such kind of concession will cause the blending of flexibility and functionality. I don't think other search engines have special protection from government. But indeed Google's search capability is amazing, that's why it becomes so popular.:-)

If you wanted results of the other search engines you can go to those search engines, which are just as easy to access as Google. It's not as if they had a government-protected monopoly.
