Google Takes Fight to Topple Record Fine Over Android to EU’s Top Court

  • Tech giant to appeal court ruling over $4.5 billion fine
  • “There are areas that require legal clarification”: Google

Google will take its appeal of the record €4.3 billion ($4.5 billion) European Union antitrust fine over its dominance in the Android mobile market to the bloc’s top court. 

The penalty hits at the heart of the US tech giant’s power over the Android mobile-phone ecosystem, and in September judges at a lower court mostly sided with the European Commission’s arguments but reduced the overall fine to €4.1 billion.
