Google loses most appeal of EU Android decision

BRUSSELS-Alphabet Google lost most of its appeal to overturn a $4.33 billion antitrust ruling imposed by the European Union for allegedly using its Android operating system to crush competition, but won a cut of around $215 million fine.

Wednesday’s decision is a vote of confidence for the European Commission, the bloc’s antitrust authority, which has been aggressive in targeting big US tech companies over concerns about anti-competitive behavior. The Android case was the largest of three antitrust fines totaling more than $8 billion the Commission has imposed on Google since 2017, and it focused on cellphones, one of the fastest growing areas. of the company.
