Google Loses EU Antitrust Appeal, To Pay Billions of Dollars As Fine

Posted by Thandiubani on Wed 14th Sep, 2022 - tori.ng

Google, however, said it was disappointed at the EU court’s decision to mostly uphold a record fine against the company.

 
Google will pay billions of dollars after losing European Union's antitrust appeal.
 
According to AFP, the European Union’s second-highest court on Wednesday overwhelmingly upheld the European Union’s record fine against Google.
 
However, it slightly reduced the amount.
 
In a statement, the EU’s General court said it “largely confirms the commission’s decision that Google imposed unlawful restrictions on manufacturers of Android mobile devices” in order to benefit its search engine.
 
The court, however, said the fine should be slightly reduced to 4.125 billion euros ($4.1 billion), instead of the 4.3 billion euros decided by the commission in 2018.
 
Google, however, said it was disappointed at the EU court’s decision to mostly uphold a record fine for the dominance of the tech giant’s Android mobile-phone operating system.
 
“We are disappointed that the court did not annul the decision in full. Android has created more choice for everyone, not less, and supports thousands of successful businesses in Europe and around the world,” the company said in a short statement.
