Google fined by European Commission

Economics Correspondent

The tech giant Google has been fined a record £3.9 billion by the European Commission for breaching anti-trust rules. It follows an investigation into claims that it made smartphone manufactures pre-install Google’s search engine and Chrome browser on Android devices, exploiting its already dominant market share at the expense of smaller developers. Google has denied any wrongdoing and said it would appeal.
