The European Commission has decided to discontinue negotiations with Google about the violation of the antimonopoly legislation and move to a more effective method. In particular, she is determined to prove the Internet giant their point of view through the courts. According to the authoritative edition of The Wall Street Journal, the official charges against Google should be made in the EC the next few weeks.
For several years now, the European Commission is trying to prove that Google uses its dominant position in the search market to promote their own products and services, which is contrary to law. Now the European Commission is more determined and even appealed to the companies that had previously filed complaints on Google, so they gave her permission to share some of the information transmitted on a confidential basis. Among these companies - the point of retail trade, tourism, and many other organizations.
If the Commission is able to prove in court that Google is abusing its market leadership, the US Internet giant will have to fork out for a decent amount of which is estimated at about US $ 6 billion.
