Google has lost its appeal in the antitrust ‘shopping’ case brought by the European Commission. The European General Court ruled that the company had favoured its own comparison shopping service rather than delivering the ‘better result’. The EU fined Google €2.42 billion in 2017, following a seven year investigation. The case could still be appealed to the European Court of Justice. Meanwhile, the UK Supreme Court has blocked a class-action lawsuit brought against Google over the company’s alleged use of tracking data on iPhones.

A US federal judge has ordered Apple to comply with an injunction to open up its Apple Store to rival payment platforms, describing the company as engaging in ‘incipient antitrust conduct’. Apple says that no additional business changes should be required to take effect until all appeals in the case have been resolved.
