More on Google: Sources tell AllThingsD the FTC will likely announce a settlement with Google this week similar to the one that was reported last month. The commission has postponed its decision in light of the EU's ongoing battle, but chairman Jon Leibowitz is reportedly pushing for a vote by week's end. The reported settlement involves "voluntary commitments" regarding the exporting of ad campaign data and the scraping of content for use in search results, but is widely seen as a slap on the wrist.
