European Union antitrust chief warns against breaking up Big Tech firms
EU antitrust chief Margrethe Vestager says breaking up tech giants like Apple and Google, could have unintended consequences and legal ramifications.
"I don't think it is something that should be introduced in this legislation," EU digital policy and antitrust chief Margrethe Vestager told The Information. "And I think one should be very careful with that type of remedy because one should be very sure how it would actually work."
"It would tie you up in court for a very, very long time," she continued. "I think it's important we try these routes first with the platforms."
