feel that perhaps competitors have been hard done. the investigation has been going on for seven years. but also the revenue stream. out of that makes $90 billion per year. you have to make it substantial if it is going to hurt in any sort of way. it pales in significance compared to the apple tax fine that we saw back in august. that was 13 billion euros. she is not afraid of leveling the sort of sizes. think about the facebook fines we saw a few months ago showing that they perhaps misled the investigation of the merger. that was only 110 million euros. saying, are you attacking u.s. tech here? why do give such big punishments? sake of it is the
protection. >> we have a number of google cases, three by now. in europe you have to move and be successful and grow to be big. if you start to misuse your dominant position to prevent others from having the same type of success, then we get concerned. that is the example of the google cases. we think google is misusing its own position to promote itself and stay where they are and not allow others to compete with them in a fair way. that is when we were speaking to the european competition commissioner. nots also notable that is just u.s. tech they get to, german tech makers got a big fine last year. hyde in london
