Google has suspended their advertising partnership with Yahoo after European regulators started investigating the deal.

Google and Yahoo! today said they would temporarily suspend the partnership until regulators from both the US and EU have time to scrutinize the deal.

The planned partnership will see the two search engine giants combine their search advertising systems, which would allow Google to sell advertising on Yahoo! in return for a share of the profits.

Update: Looks like Brand Republic got their information wrong, the deal is being reviewed and hasn’t been suspended!
