Google Loses Most of Appeal of EU Android Decision

BRUSSELS—Alphabet Google misplaced most of its attraction to overturn the most important antitrust effective it has to this point confronted globally, a lift to the European Union’s marketing campaign to rein in alleged anticompetitive conduct by large tech corporations.

The EU’s Common Courtroom in Luxembourg on Wednesday largely upheld a 2018 determination by the EU competitors regulator that fined Google $4.33 billion for abusing the market dominance of its Android working system for cell phones to advertise and entrench its Google search engine and Chrome browser on cellular gadgets.
