Google appeals EU's €2.4B fine

Google has filed an appeal against the European Commission’s decision to fine it a record €2.4 billion sometime back this year. The search giant is positive that the amount might change for good after Intel managed to overturn an 8-year-old decision for anti-competitive behavior.

The European Commission ordered the company on June 27 to stop tampering with results on Google Shopping and gave the company two months to comply with the decision. With the September 28 date closing, Google had not asked for an interim order of the suspension, according to a court spokeswoman.

The Alphabet affiliate company will now need to come up with a proposal how it would satisfy the European Commission’s ruling to allow consumers “a choice and benefits of innovation”. Google has to change its algorithm and treat rival shopping services as equal.
