PriceRunner Sues Google For $2.4 Billion For Favoring Its Own Shopping Service

Sweden-based price comparison service PriceRunner has announced that it’s suing Google for €2.1 billion ($2.4 billion) after a European court ruled that Google breached EU antitrust laws. Last November, the European Union’s General Court upheld a decision to fine Google a record €2.42 billion (US$2.8 billion) for favoring its own comparison shopping services over rivals.
