A Stand for Innovation! Google Fined $5.1 Billion by the EU for Antitrust Violations.

The EU takes a stand for Innovation! They slap Alphabet (Google/Android) with a $5.1 Billion for violating European antitrust regulations. Apps such as Gmail, Google Maps, YouTube, Chrome, and the Play Store are required as pre-installed per Google’s terms of licensing for a full-feature version of Android OS. The EU antitrust laws are regulating anti-competitive conduct by companies to ensure that they do not create cartels and monopolies that would damage the interests of society.
