Alphabet Inc. (GOOGL) - Get Report said that it has appealed the record 2.4 billion euro ($2.9 billion) fine the European Commission levied against the company June 27 for exalting its own shopping results in searches over that of competitors.
The European Commission gave Google until September 28 to change its practices to avoid further fines.
European regulators are also expected to levy further fines in separate cases over Google's Android smartphone software and its AdSense advertising business as early as next month.
While Google has declined to comment on the details of its appeal, the European Commission has said that it will defend its ruling in court.
