EU to Hit Google with 4.3 Billion Euro Fine in Android Case
BRUSSELS (Reuters) - EU antitrust regulators will on Wednesday levy a 4.3-billion-euro ($5 billion) on Google (GOOGL.O) for using its dominant Android mobile operating system to block rivals, a person familiar with the matter said.
The penalty from the European Commission is the highest ever imposed on a company for breaching EU rules and comes just over a year after the EU enforcer handed down a 2.4 billion euro fine to Google for favoring its shopping service over rivals.
