Google Challenges Record EU Antitrust Fine in Court

On Monday, Reuters (Sept. 11, Chee) reports, Google appealed against a record 2.4-billion-euro (US$2.9 billion) EU antitrust fine, with its chances of success boosted by Intel's partial victory earlier this month against another EU sanction. The world's most popular Internet search engine launched its appeal a couple of months after it was fined by the European Commission for abusing its dominance in Europe by giving prominent placement in searches to its comparison shopping service and demoting rival offerings. The Luxembourg-based General Court is expected to take several years before ruling on the appeal. Google is a unit of the U.S. firm Alphabet.
