Google will appeal €2.9bn European Union fine

The EU hit Google with the record fine - which broke the previous EU record for a monopoly case, against United States chipmaker Intel of 1.06 billion euros in 2009 - in June for illegally favoring its shopping service in search results.

The Commission ordered Google to stop its practice of promoting its own shopping comparison service above rivals by 28 September.

Last week, EU officials said a plan that Google recently filed to comply with European regulations appeared to be a step "in the right direction".

Fed Vice Chairman Fischer announces resignation citing personal reasons
Quarles' nomination is still pending before the Senate. "It would be easier to keep her around", Swonk said. Fischer joined the Fed in March 2014 after an eight-year term as the governor of the Bank of Israel.

However, setting up a court battle between Brussels and the internet giant could take years to resolve and make already tense relations between Europe and the United States tech giant even more fraught, AFP reported. Google had initially said that they "respectfully" disagrees with the legal argument.

If it did not, the Commission said, it faced penalty payments of up to 5 per cent of the average daily worldwide turnover of Alphabet, which is Google's parent company.

At the end of last month Google did take the first steps to comply with the Commission's antitrust order against Google Shopping, submitting details of how it intends to amend the price comparison service - though these proposals have not been made public.

Nissan to launch new Leaf electric vehicle

Google may have been emboldened by Intel's recent success in appealing a €1.06 billion antitrust fine - the previous European Union record - imposed by the Commission in 2009.

"The commission will defend its decision in court", a spokesperson for the commission said. It denied other companies the chance to compete on the merits and to innovate.
