Google vs the EU's antitrust complaints

Share this story

The European Union has been battling with Google over antitrust complaints for years, with the European Commission — the part of the EU responsible for enforcing and writing the Union's laws — accusing the company of abusing its dominant position in a number of markets. This history of informal probes and official complaints dates back to 2010, and includes the US company's search, shopping, advertising, mobile, and mapping businesses. So far, though, the EU has yet to levy any fines against Google, which has consistently denied acting in a monopolistic fashion.
