The European Union has slapped a record two-point-seven
billion-dollar fine on Google for violation of an antitrust law. It’s the largest amount regulators have ever
imposed on a single company in such a case. The European Commission said Google had abused
its power by promoting its own shopping comparison service at the top of search results and demoting
rivals. The Commission gave Google 90 days to end
such conduct or face further penalty. Google says it may appeal the ruling.
