The Google Android Appeal Hearing

In this episode, we walk through the General Court hearing in the Google Android case, which took place in Luxembourg from 27 September until 1 October. Google appealed to the General Court the European Commission’s 2018 4.3B EUR fine for abuse of market power. We discuss the major points of contention, including market definition and power, pre-installation agreements and anti-fragmentation agreements, highlighting the arguments made by Google and the Commission, and the points of law that the judgment could help clarify.
