EU: Google tries to cancel a fine of 1.49 billion euros

One lawsuit leading to another, Google is heading back to the Palace to challenge one of the many convictions against it within the European Union. As a reminder, its parent company -Alphabet- holds a cumulative total of 8.25 billion euros, and intends to cancel -before the European Court of Justice- a €1.49 billion fine imposed by EU antitrust regulators three years ago for hampering rivals in online search advertising. In 2019, Google had been accused of imposing its online ad system -AdSense- to the detriment of those of the competition. According to the European Commission, these illegal practices took place from 2006 to 2016. This procedure begins today and will last three days before the closing of the debates.
