Some of Google’s oldest foes have been given the chance to take a swipe at the U.S. giant’s appeal of a $2.7 billion European Union antitrust fine for choking competition for shopping-search services.
The EU’s General Court said European consumer group BEUC, German magazine publishers and Foundem -- the first company to complain to the EU about how Google treats shopping rivals -- can all intervene in the case because they have a direct interest in the result. The decisions dated Dec. 17 were published online.
