This chart shows how dominant Google is in Europe and the UK: About 9 out of every 10 consumers there use Google's search engine

Europe's competition watchdog sent a message to Google in the form of a record $5 billion antitrust fine for abusing its power in one market to strengthen its role in a few others.
As this chart from Statista shows, Google clearly dominates a few European and UK consumer markets.

But in a 2016 investigation, the European Commission concluded...

Google's European fine is a flashback to Microsoft's ugly antitrust battle

Today, the European Commission handed down a $5 billion fine to Google for anti-competitive behavior, the single biggest antitrust ruling the company has ever faced.

Opinion: EU's Android Antitrust Fine Is Just A Slap On Google's Wrist

4 monthes ago   |   By Android Headlines

Google just broke the record for the largest antitrust fine issued in the history of the European Union, having nearly doubled the previous record holder - Google. The company's $5.05 billion fine issued over its illegal restrictions imposed on Android device manufacturers dwarfs the $2.7 billion penalty it was given for promoting its online shopping service in an anti-competitive manner last year and will most likely also surpass the sanction that it has yet to receive due to abusing the dominant position of AdSense in the digital marketing industry at the expense of its rivals once the...

Wall Street doesn't think that the $5 billion EU fine will slow Google down - but one analyst says there's another, overlooked cause for concern

4 monthes ago   |   By Business Insider

Analysts who cover Google don't expect that the $5 billion fine imposed on the company by the European Union to cause much harm to the business.
According to reports published Wednesday by finanacial analysts, Google is largely expected to meet Wall Street expectations.
Ben Schachter, senior analyst at Macquarie Research, posted a gloomier note. He complained that Google withholds too much information and that this makes it more difficult to evaluate the company.
Schacter also stood out from others for advising caution when it comes to valuing Google's side businesses.
Wall Street is...
