Legal Tech Knowledge Lags Despite Outside Counsel’s Growing Expectations By Cassandre Coyer
ENGINE FAILURE - Yesterday, Google and parent company Alphabet lost an appeal of a landmark €4.3 billion antitrust fine in what lawyers described as a triumph for the aggressive antitrust enforcement approach pursued by EU competition czar Margrethe Vestager, Law.com International’s Linda A. Thompson reports. The decision from the General Court centered on a 2018 fine imposed by Brussels officials on the Mountain View, California-headquartered company for allegedly placing anti-competitive restrictions on manufacturers of mobile devices and mobile network operators to protect and bolster the dominant position of its search engine, Google Search, and the revenue from search advertisements. The fine was the largest ever given by a competition authority in Europe. This is the second appeal the U.S. tech giant has lost against a billion-euro EU antitrust fine. Last year, the Luxembourg court of first instance for EU law sided with the European Commission in a challenge to a 2017 antitrust fine of €2.42 billion centering on Google’s comparison shopping service. A third appeal against a €1.49 billion antitrust fine over Google’s anti-competitive behavior in the online advertising space is outstanding, with a decision not expected before 2023.
