Google fined 2.42 billion euros

Google Corp. has been fined amounting to 2.42 billion euros. As it became known, the similar decision was taken by the European Commission in connection with the revealed abuse of the dominant position in the search engine market.

Investigation due to suspicions of the violation of antitrust laws against the corporation was started more than two years ago. In April last year, the European Commission reported that Google requires manufacturers of gadgets on the Android OS to preinstall the Google Search service and the Chrome browser. At the same time, the company had no right to claim such claims.

Recall that the Russian antimonopoly authority also started cases against Google. Claims against the corporation were again associated with abuse of the dominant position and pre-installation of their applications on smartphones.
