What EU's Record Fine Means for Google, Tech Industry

The chairman of U.S. Federal Trade Commission said Wednesday that the agency is "very interested" in learning more about the European Union’s record fine of Google.

The comments by a top U.S. antitrust enforcer at a House subcommittee hearing came just hours after the EU levied a $5 billion (4.3 billion euro) fine on the Alphabet Inc. company, ordering it to change the way it puts search and web browser apps on Android devices.
