    It's so nice to see Google get a legal black eye I wish someone could figure out a way to break the company up.

    Heh. The EU has been fining everyone they can for antitrust or price fixing or tax avoidance.

    In Apple's case, it was $13 billion in unpaid taxes because of their Ireland deal.

    The EU Commission has become the equivalent of a small town judge making money by setting up a speed trap with heavy instant fines. Easy money.
