The only unfair advantage Google has here is that it runs on American Ingenuity™ which europe has no chance to stand against lol

“Google gives systematic favorable treatment” to its Google Shopping at the expense of others in its general search results.

What's wrong?! You should only be able to do business until you're really good at it. Then you get cut down to make room for the inferior business models. Cus we all know once a business is dominant it stays that way for ever and ever and nothing changes until the law gets involved.

No, you need to stop companies from limiting competition. That way you can actually have competition. I don't expect Americans to know this though considering your companies own the politicians.

So how did google stop its competition in Europe? Did they get laws passed or just offer better service? Cus the former is your politicians fault and the latter is called being competitive.

read the damn article and you will know. It is not about stopping google from being the number 1 search engine in the world.

“Dominance as such is not a problem,” said Vestager. “However dominant companies have a responsibility not to abuse their powerful market position.”


it even contains the bloody point I was making.

um just so we're clear, anti-trust/competition complaints are a more regular thing in the US anyway. pretty sure microsoft and yahoo and even aol (way back when) have bitched about google in the past already. It's just that EU is in a better position to actually do something about it seeing as the company is foreign to them. also EU countries are a little bitter about the likes of google using all sorts of dirty tricks to avoid paying local taxes, so often the politicians here are quite happy to get them back with pointless fines.

same thing with Microsoft and windows (& internet explorer)

Microsoft has and will pay billions for their abuse of market power.

yeah. it's never like these companies can't afford the fines.

it's just ends up some weak statement that puts some money in the country's pocket.

But the article also says this
When it comes to comparative internet shopping, Singhal wrote in a blog that “it’s clear that (a) there’s a ton of competition (including from Amazon and eBay, two of the biggest shopping sites in the world) and (b) Google’s shopping results have not the harmed the competition

What was the "abuse of market power?" What laws did they break?

Of course an anti-free market government body will claim Google is "abusing" market dominance. See how that goes both ways?

The article does absolutely zilch to explain how Google manipulates it's shopping comparisons

No, it does not. Considering our governments are not anti-free market. Whereas companies protecting themselves is the norm.
