Tech Giants Face Tougher New Rules, More Power to Enforcers: EU’s Vestager | Technology News

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Tech giants will have to play fairer in the 27-country bloc under new rules aimed at reining in their power while EU antitrust regulators will also arm themselves with more power to investigate structural problems, Europe’s digital chief said on Thursday.
