European Commission fined Google for a record 2,4 billion euros

For violation of antitrust rules, the European Commission fined the company Google at 2,4 billion.

According to the statement of the European Commission, this decision was made on the grounds that the company "uses its dominant position in the market as a search engine, giving an illegal advantage to another Google product," TASS reports.

It became known that Google can appeal to the European Court, this is stated in a statement published in the official blog of the corporation on Tuesday.

"We express our respectful disagreement with the conclusions released today," Google said. "We will study in detail the decision of the commission, we are considering the possibility of filing an appeal."

Recall that in Russia the Federal Antimonopoly Service also had a claim against Google, but it all ended with a settlement agreement and a fine of 438 million rubles.
