In February the US Department of Justice and European Commission cleared Google Inc.'s acquisition of Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc. without any conditions. In contrast, on May 19, 2012 the Chinese Ministry of Commerce ("MOFCOM") approved the acquisition subject to what some observers believe were over-cautious conditions...Perhaps over time, MOFCOM will feel more secure in taking more of a "watch and see" as opposed to a micro-manage approach.
