EU Regulators Slam Google $2.7 billion fine For Anti-Competitive Practices

  EU antitrust regulators slammed a record 2.42-billion-euro ($2.7 billion) fine on Alphabet unit Google on Tuesday by illegally favoring its shopping service.


The European Commission said the world’s most popular internet search engine has 90 days to end its anti-competitive practice or face penalty payments up to 5 percent of Alphabet’s average daily worldwide turnover.

                            
The action came after a seven-year long investigation prompted by scores of complaints from rivals such as U.S. consumer review website Yelp, TripAdvisor, UK price comparison site Foundem, News
Corp and lobbying group FairSearch.


This is the biggest fine for a single company in an EU antitrust case, exceeding a 1.06-billion-euro sanction handed down to U.S. chipmaker Intel in 2009.
