UE fines Google record €2.4 billion

The European Commission has imposed a record 2.4 billion euro fine on the Google company after finding that company had abused of its powers when it pushed its service to the top of its search engine.

The amount is the largest ever imposed by a regulator against a company accused of hindering the European market. The decision orders Google to also stop anti-competition practices within 90 days, failing which it will be facing other fines.

The NUS company has indicated that it will be appealing the case.
