Google appeals against 2.4-billion euro fine in European Union court

Google announced it will challenge the fine levied by the EU in June following a court decision on a similar case with Intel
Google has made a decision to appeal the record-breaking fine imposed on it by the European Union's highest antitrust authority in July.
The European Commission gave Google until September 28 to change its practices to avoid further fines.

Lodging the appeal does not suspend the fine, meaning Google is still obliged to pay up, though it can put the money in a blocked account until the decision is reached.
The company was expected to appeal the fine, which was the largest ever penalty issued by the regulator, after saying it had "respectfully disagreed" with the ruling. Following this, Google submitted details of its offer to the European Union last week, which the anti-trust chief said her teams were carefully evaluating.

Brussels accuses Google of giving its own service too much priority in search results to the detriment of other price comparison services, such as TripAdvisor and Expedia.
The EU is now also investigating whether Google tried to squeeze out its rivals in online search advertising and through its Android mobile operating system.
