Google fined a record $5 billion by the EU for Android antitrust violations – The Verge

“The European Commission has been investigating Android more closely over the past year after rivals complained that Google has been abusing its market dominance in software that runs on smartphones. FairSearch originally filed a complaint against Google back in 2013, and the group included competitors like Nokia, Microsoft, and Oracle. Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer also called Google a ‘monopoly’ at the time, one that authorities should control.”

That last sentence above!
