They believe Google’s actions harm consumers and digital companies across Europe
According to the Ecommerce News, 41 European comparison shopping services say Google continues abusing market power. They complain that the search engine avoids compliance with the law and the decisions of authorities.
The European comparison shopping services, including Compare Group, Preisvergleich, Testberichte, and Ceneje, have undersigned a letter to Margrethe Vestager, the European Commissioner for Competition.
They call for actions against Google’s non-compliance with the decision from the European Commission in June 2017. The Commission implied that Google put its comparison shopping service, Google Shopping, in more favorable positioning, compared to competing services.
After Google got a record-breaking fine of €2.4 billion, they decided to split off Google Shopping. Later, the EU concluded that Google has improved its comparison shopping service.
