First analysis of EU Google I decision

Associated professor Christian Bergqvist, Ph.D. from CME has published a first analysis of EU Google I decision. The decision was delivered in June 2017 but not released before 18 December 2017.

While the work undertaken by the EU Commission is impressive and bold there are much to be discussed when it comes to the legal parts and hence much to be challenged by Google before the EU General Court. Moreover, it is contemplated that Google have failed to remedy the abuse and thus might face daily fines on top of the original Euro 2.42 billion fine. The analysis is available from SSRN.
