Google has been fined 150 million euros by France’s competition watchdog, media reports have said. The search engine giant has been accused by French company Gibmedia of having suspended its Google ads account without notice.

Google has said it was going to appeal against the decision.

The regulator has been quoted as saying that “by changing terms of use and rules at will Google had abused its market power”.

Google, on its part, has said that Gibmedia’s account was suspended as it was “running ads for websites that deceived people into paying for services on unclear billing terms”.
