The Verge reports that the “European Union has formally accused Google of illegal, monopolistic practices.” Apparently the search giant had been prioritizing their own products and services within search results. The EU believes that by doing this they drove traffic away from competitors.
Google could be fined as much ” as 10% of its yearly earnings”.
Are these monopolistic practices or is Google simply utilizing something that belongs to them for their benefit?
What do you think?
