Russian Probe Finds Google Guilty Of Abusing Its Dominant Market PositionBy cheatmaster 03:35 Tue, 27 Jul 2021 Comments
Just seven months after Russia initiated an antitrust probe into Google, the company has been found guilty of "abusing its dominant market position," according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.
The probe was initiated after a complaint was received alleging the Mountain View, California-based company of following anti-competitive practices, especially related to the way it bundles apps with Android.
The complaint was made by Russia's biggest Internet company Yandex - which controls over 50% of the country's online search market - after several device manufacturers complained that they were no longer able to pre-install the company's services like maps and search apps on Android.
When asked to comment, a Google spokesperson said, “We haven’t yet received the ruling,“ adding that “when we do, we will study it and determine our next steps.”
