Goggle faces a massive fine after the EU was dissatisfied with the way it showed shopping results, claiming it favoured it's own comparison service above others. This is the result of a seven year probe into the way Google displays search results.
Is it a fair fine and abuse, or is it simply Google using it's commanding search position as a fair business advantage?
For me, monopolies are never a good thing and perhaps the EU has got this one right.
* I think that's just speculation in my view. If the UK government sees sense, they'll give courts the power to dish out huge fines like the EU has done.*
The UK Government can give the courts whatever powers it chooses, but enforcement, against a major multinational by a small group of unimportant islands off the north west coast of Europe, is entirely different!
The EU can bring massive sanctions to bear against Google, the UK hardly any, and any sanctions they do enforce are going to affect the UK much more than Google
