Billions of fines for Google
In recent months, Alphabet has been fined € 1.49 billion for abuse of power. The European Commission has decided in March that Google's AdSense advertising industry has been abusing its power for more than a decade.
The company has received a high fine from the European Commission twice. In 2017, Google had to pay 2.4 billion euros because the company was getting its product comparator into the results of its search engine.
A year earlier, Google had abused its dominant position with the Android mobile operating system. The company had to pay EUR 4.34 billion. When you purchased Android, phone manufacturers were required to purchase additional Google services.
