Google files appealing around USD4.3B penalty to EU's head court

(MENAFN) Google declared on Thursday that it has presented an appeal over the €4.1 billion (USD4.3 billion) fine around its Android working system at the EU's top court.

The US-based tech company stated that "there are areas that require legal clarification from the European Court of Justice" as the EU accuses Android limits rivalry and customer choice in mobile sector.

"Android has created more choice for everyone, not less, and supports thousands of successful businesses in Europe and around the world," Google stated in an announcement.

The firm previously appealed to the European Court of Justice’s General Court, which decreased the original €4.34 billion (USD4.55 billion) penalty– the biggest-ever fine by the European Commission.

The peak penalty is one of three antitrust lawsuits of the European Commission versus Google from 2017 to 2019, which overall acmulate to higher than €9 billion (USD9.44 billion).

While the 27-nation alliance attempts to cap the possibility of tech giants, Google claims its Android system opened the path for lower mobile devices as well as applications.
