Google is locked in a court battle with EU over $4.7 billion fine from EU regulators

Google will be backed by two Android phone manufacturers and one web software firm in a European Union court challenge to a 4.3 billion-euro ($4.7 billion) fine from EU regulators last year for unfairly linking apps to Android software, the court said in an order made public on Thursday.

Gigaset Communications GmbH; HMD Global Oy, the exclusive licensee of the Nokia brand for phones and tablets; and Opera Software AS will be allowed to speak on behalf of Google in the case, along with industry groups the Application Developers Alliance and the Computer & Communications Industry Association, the EU’s General Court said. CCIA backed the EU in a court battle with Microsoft over a decade ago.

The EU side will get support from German newspaper and magazine publishers, Czech search engine Seznam.cz AS, search firm Qwant SAS and the European consumers group BEUC.
