14 July 2016, USA :

Google has been hit with more charges from the European Commission, adding to the antitrust headaches the Internet giant is facing in Europe.

This time Europe’s antitrust regulator is taking closer aim at Google’s lucrative search advertising business which generated more than 90% of its revenue last year.

Google is already facing formal anti-trust charges over claims that it abused the dominant position of its Android operating system.

EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said Google had no right to limit its rivals.
She said: “Google has come up with many innovative products that have made a difference to our lives. But that doesn’t give Google the right to deny other companies the chance to compete and innovate.”

A spokesperson for Google said on Thursday: “We believe that our innovations and product improvements have increased choice for European consumers and promote competition.
“We’ll examine the Commission’s renewed cases and provide a detailed response in the coming weeks.”
