Google Yet Again Gets Anti-Trust Charges

The Latest Insights from International Online Marketing

Google has been accused yet again of using its online power to muscle out rival companies.The EU's competition enforcer, Margarethe Vestager, has issued two new sets of charges against Google in relation to the way the company allegedly abuses its position in online shopping, and how it restricts competition.After anti-trust complaints were made against Google by Android back in April for stifling competition, these new claims are expected to increase the likelihood that punishments such as fines could come into play.The search engine has responded to the new charges by saying that it believes its “innovations and product improvements have increased choice for European consumers and promote competition”.However, it also acknowledged the charges and has promised to “examine the Commission\'s renewed cases and provide a detailed response in the coming weeks."
