The EC slapped this record fine on the Alphabet Inc. GOOGL subsidiary on Jun 27 for favoring Google Shopping/Google Product Search/Froogle over comparison shopping services of competitors.

Details about the appeal are scant but per a court spokesman, Google has not appealed for any interim order to suspend EC's decision.
