Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, apologized for the emergence of the strategy to be followed against the EU. The emergence of documents put Pichai in a difficult position.
Sundar Pichai, Google CEO, made a statement
The European Competition Commission is working on a new draft law. As of December 2, the Digital Services Act and the Digital Markets Act are expected to come into force.
Google has already started working on these draft laws regulating competition. In the resulting documents, a 60-day plan showing how Google will pursue a strategy against the new laws appeared. However, the emergence of these documents put Google in a very difficult situation.
Pichai apologized for the documents emerging from European Internal Market Commissioner Thierry Breton. Pichai also emphasized that he had not seen and approved these documents before. However, these documents also show how Google is preparing to take a tough fight with EU law. The new regulation includes companies sharing their data with competitors and regulators and not unfairly promoting their services and products. We can say that Google, which often gets into trouble with competition, will also fight with the new laws.
