Google Fined $1.7 Billion by E.U. for Unfair Advertising Rules

European authorities on Wednesday fined Google 1.5 billion euros for allegedly breaching trust rules in the online advertising market, continuing its efforts to dominate in the world’s biggest technology companies.

The fine, worth about $1.7 billion, is the third sanction against Google by the European Union since 2017, re-iterating the region’s position as the world’s most aggressive watchdog of an industry with an increasingly powerful role in society and the global economy. The regulators said Google had violated antitrust rules by imposing unfair terms on companies that used its search bar on their websites in Europe.
