(LUXEMBOURG) E.U Antitrust Court Report: Google up in arms over being fined a record 4.3-billion they try to annul whilst regulators ignore Apple #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.28: Alphabet (GOOGL.O) unit Google on Monday blasted EU antitrust regulators for ignoring rival Apple (AAPL.O) as it launched a bid to get Europe’s second-highest court to annul a record 4.34-billion euro ($5.1 billion) fine related to its Android operating system.

#AceDailyNews says that according too Reuters Google (Android Operating System) is in a fight against record EU fine, slamming regulators for ignoring Apple

Far from holding back rivals and harming users, Android has been a massive success story of competition at work, representatives of Google told a panel of five judges at the General Court at the start of a five-day hearing.

The European Commission fined Google in 2018, saying that it had used Android since 2011 to thwart rivals and cement its dominance in general internet search.

Regardless of how the court rules, Google, Apple, Amazon and Facebook will have to change their business models in the coming years to ensure a level playing field for rivals following tough new rules proposed by European Union antitrust chief Margrethe Vestager.

“The Commission shut its eyes to the real competitive dynamic in this industry, that between Apple and Android,” Google’s lawyer Meredith Pickford told the court.

“By defining markets too narrowly and downplaying the potent constraint imposed by the highly powerful Apple, the Commission has mistakenly found Google to be dominant in mobile operating systems and app stores, when it was in fact a vigorous market disrupter,” he said.

‘European Ministers Meet Behind Closed Doors To Find A Way To Prevent Radical Terrorism’

#AceWorldNews – European interior affairs ministers are meeting to discuss ways to prevent radical Muslims in their countries from travelling to fight in Syria‘s civil war and then returning home to commit acts of terrorism.

Greek Public Order Minister Nikolaos Dendias is chairing Thursday’s meeting in Luxembourg.

Upon arrival, he told reporters that it was prompted by a deadly shooting at the Jewish Museum in Brussels last month and the subsequent arrest of a suspected French jihadi whom officials say had been in Syria.

German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said the risk had been abstract until now. He expects the ministers group to announce conclusions next month.

European anti-terrorism coordinator Gilles de Kerchove was to brief ministers on current anti-jihadi measures around Europe during the closed-door meeting.
