The Supreme Court has said it “unanimously rejects” legal action against Google on behalf of 4.4 million people in the UK and Wales. The UK Supreme Court has banned action against Google, which has been accused of illegally tracking millions of iPhone users.
The Supreme Court ruling in the country’s first data privacy case will dilute similar lawsuits filed against technology giants such as Facebook and Dictoc. Google could have been fined 3. 3.2 billion ($ 4.3 billion) if it had been allowed to sue in a world-watching case. The court ruled that “the general court rejects Google’s action against the commission’s decision to find that Google abused its own comparative shopping service, rather than competing comparative shopping services.”
But before that, it should be noted that Google has suffered a setback in the EU. Europe’s second-largest court has rejected Google’s appeal against the EU’s no-confidence motion, and a $ 2.42 billion ($ 2.8 billion) fine imposed by EU competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager has been a major setback for Google.But if Google decides to approach the European Court of Human Rights, the matter could be re-investigated.
The lawsuit was probably funded by EU competition, with Google claiming that it was unfairly pushing rival companies to make a profit.
