Google, in the past few years, has become an extremely powerful player in the European patent market.
It acquired the European Union’s patent office in 2018 and has been pursuing a number of patent applications that it believes will be useful to the company.
Now, the European Commission has decided to scrap its decision to allow Google to acquire the office.
“The European Commission’s decision is not in accordance with the EU’s policy objectives and is contrary to the EU Commission’s commitment to innovation,” the Commission’s patent and technology policy chief Fabian de Groot said in a statement.
The Commission’s position is clear, the Commission said.
“In this case, the decision is contrary and does not provide a solution to the problems we have identified, as it does not allow Google, the owner of the European patents office, to continue to use it as a tool for its patent applications,” the statement reads.
This move comes as the European Court of Justice has issued a number rulings against Google, which are based on the premise that Google is not complying with its obligations under EU antitrust laws.
The Court’s decision on the issue will be heard on Wednesday.
Google has also been accused of abusing its position in the EU patent market, as the Commission argues that Google has made it difficult for companies to find customers.
The European Patent Court is a body created by the European Economic Community in 2003 to provide oversight of the EU Patent Office, which is responsible for issuing patents for the EU.
It also plays a key role in the negotiation of EU-US trade agreements.
The patent office has been at the center of the ongoing patent debate between the EU and the US.
Google, one of the largest US technology companies, has been accused by the US of abusing the EU-Canada free trade agreement to extract more concessions from the US in the patent markets in the two countries.
