Google Disagrees With EU Findings & €2.4bn Antitrust Fine
The EU has hit Google with a €2.4bn antitrust fine for abusing its dominance in search, a decision with potentially far-reaching implications for both the tech sector and already strained transatlantic relations.
The fine is the biggest ever for such an antitrust case. It comes after a seven-year investigation led the European Commission to conclude that the tech group abused its online search to “give illegal advantage” to its own shopping service.
The company has 90 days to change its behaviour or face a further penalty.
In a statement, Google said it disagreed with the findings. BM
