Google was fined by EU Regulators for $1.68 billion!
$1.68B fine was imposed on Google by EU Regulators for blocking ads by rival companies. “Today’s decision is about how Google abused its dominance to stop websites using brokers other than the AdSense platform,” The EU’s competition commissioner, Margrethe Vestager said.
“prevented its rivals from having a chance to innovate and to compete in the market on their merits,”
“Advertisers and website owners, they had less choice and likely faced higher prices that would be passed on to consumers.” she added.
