Monopolistic Big Tech company Google is being held accountable by regulators in South Korea who are making the company pay nearly $200 million in fines after the company violated antitrust laws.

South Korean regulators announced this week Google must pay out 207.4 billion won, the equivalent of $177 million U.S. dollars, after determining that the company blocked smartphone makers from using other operating systems, Associated Press reported.

The lawsuit refers to phone manufacturers like Samsung that have been affected by Google’s monopolistic practices.

If you have ever owned a Samsung phone, you know that the phone comes with pre-installed Google apps, and Google Chrome is set as the primary search engine.

This kind of market dominance is what South Korea’s Fair-Trade Commission is fighting against.

Joh Sung-wook, chairwoman of the Fair-Trade commission, said Google has worked to eliminate competition for a decade by “obligating its electronics partners to sign ‘anti-fragmentation agreements,” which prevent the companies from “installing modified versions of Google’s operating systems on devices like smartphones and smartwatches,” AP reported.

Responding to the South Korea FTC’s allegations, Google defended decisions that brought “incredible hardware and software innovation, and brought enormous success to Korean OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) and developers.”

Google said it believes that through its practices, Korean consumers receive “greater choice, quality, and a better user experience.”

“KFTC’s decision released today ignores these benefits, and will undermine the advantages enjoyed by consumers. Google intends to appeal the KFTC’s decision,” the company announced.

Google has long been criticized for attempting to monopolize the search engine market and dominate its competition, among other illegal business practices, but has yet to see any real consequences for their behavior eliminating choices for consumers.

Although American politicians have struggled to bring consequences against the company, South Korean regulators could be successful in their attempts to do so.
