Are Google and the European Union having a rocky relationship? I heard that the European Commission charged with keeping a close eye on Google’s goings-on critics. Is Google able to satiate the demands of complainers? What will happen if they are not able to satiate the demands of complainers? Anyone share your views on this please…
Does European Parliament want Google to be broken up?
I guess Google has a real big problem in the European Union. European Union Parliament lawmakers have requested on antitrust regulators to tear down the search giant Google. Though this is only a symbolic vote, the European Union Parliament can’t really influence European Union laws and or antitrust policies. But the result of the vote was great because 384 passed the vote, 174 are against, and 56 abstained.
Under the European Union law, it is only the European Commission that has the legal power to tear down a corporation but it has never done it. The European Commission has already ascertained that Google has unlawfully exploited its search domination in Europe by harming both consumers and competitors. According to them, Google falsely gamed its search results to endorse Google services.
They conceal rival vertical search services in different industries. By doing this, it clearly hurts other companies. It also harms consumers by providing them with fewer options and driving them to Google services.
