The European Union has been toughing up on Google’s parent company, Alphabet, due to antitrust regulation in different European countries. In this case, Google must choose whether they should fight against regulators or simply allow for the fines and penalties to come in. The problem is that in the past, other American tech companies such as Microsoft have had to pay up to $2 billion in fines. Google has said that they believe that they have a strong case against the lawsuits against them and they would not be afraid to go to court in case the European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager rejects the agreements and compromises that Google has negotiated, the previous Commissioner rejected this agreement three times already.
