EU High Court upholds Google fine
One of the European Union’s highest courts has largely upheld a huge fine issued to Google by the bloc’s anti-competition watchdog in 2018 over the tech giant’s Android mobile operating system.
The European Court of Justice’s General Court mostly confirmed a European Commission decision to slap Google with a fine of more than four billion euro for stifling competition through the dominance of Android.
The court said its reasoning for the decision differed ‘in certain respects’ from the Commission’s.
Green Party MEP Ciaran Cuffe has welcomed the decision.
