Documents published by the European Unions Permanent Court on its website show that Yelp has not been directly affected in the EUs anti-trust ruling against Googles comparative shopping search service.
Yelp and the U.S. -based non-profit consumer rights watchdog jointly sought to help the European Union in the court case, but their request was rejected. The court also rejected requests from Connexity, a digital advertising company, and ICOMP and FairSearch to intervene in the case.
The court said the two organizations could not prove that they represented companies affected by the EU investigation. FairSearch members include Oracle, Naspers and TripAdvisor. (small)
