The EU is printing fine on the 11 billion to Google

the EUROPEAN Commission has on Wednesday discharged another milliardbøde to Google. This time for abusing a big dominance in the market for netannoncer from 2006 and ten years back.

- Google has cemented its dominance over the search ads on the web and protected the company itself against pressure from competitors, says EU commissioner Margrethe Vestager at a news conference.

the Fine is at 1,49 billion euro. It is equivalent to 11 billion Danish crowns. Thus, it is far below what the commission according to EU rules could have printed.

It is the third large fine from the EU competition commissioner, Margrethe Vestager, to the american search engine, which is the most used worldwide. Google is also dominant in the EU.

Previously, Google has been the EU-fines for a total amount of 6.7 billion euros. It is the equivalent of 50 billion dollars. Google has appealed the previous cases.

The most recent case is about Google's affiliate program AdSense, which tailors ads, so they be relevant for the users of the website.

Google conveys the ad space of, for example, newspapers and on travel websites.

Google will, promises the company, in the coming months make some changes, which should give potential competitors better access. It is evidenced by a blog post that was published Tuesday.

Herein write a vice president, that Google has "listened to the EU Commission and others" and has taken steps in the direction of meet criticism.

- We have always tried to give people the best and fastest response. Regardless of whether it is directly from Google or from the wide range of specialised websites and app-providers that are available, writes Kent Walker.
