Google Appeals Against 2.4 Billion Euro Anti-Trust Fine

Google Appeals Against 2.4 Billion Euro Anti-Trust Fine

Google has filed an appeal against the 2.4 billion euro antitrust fine imposed by the European Commission in June.

The European Commission judged that Google's move to position its own shopping comparison service at the top of the Google website's result was an abuse of power. The imposed penalty for the antitrust case was the biggest one ever issued by a regulator.

During the time the fine was implemented, according to EU's Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said that Google's activity was illegal and violated EU's antitrust rules.

Google was also allowed 90 days to stop its “anti competitive strategies” or risk being hit by further fines amounting to 5 percent of the total daily global earnings of Alphabet, its parent company.
