Google Could Face The Biggest Antitrust Fine In EU History
Sources inside the European Commission say Google may be forced to pay $3.4 billion for violating competition law, although that amount could change.By Newsy Staff | May 15, 2016
Google's six-year legal battle with the European Union could result in the biggest antitrust fine in EU history.
British newspaper the Sunday Telegraph says sources within the EU plan to hit the search giant with a $3.4 billion fine.
Those sources reportedly say the company abused its position as Europe's largest search engine by putting its own products front and center in search results. Google's competitors say that makes it harder for them to reach new customers.
