The European Union’s second-highest court on Wednesday upheld a 2.4-billion-euro ($2.8-billion) fine on Google by anti-trust authorities in Brussels for search engine dominance.
It rejected an appeal by the US tech giant against a European Commission position that it “abused its dominant position” by favouring its own Google Shopping service in search results.
Google can still challenge the ruling at a bloc’s highest court, the European Court of Justice.
