The BBC Sport website is the most visited website in the world.

It is the UKs number one media company.

But Google has not been without its controversies. 

In 2013, the company was found to be in breach of the UK government’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) over its search engine results, with the BBC’s search engine ranking as the top search result for a search of “Google”.

Google was fined £1.7 million for breaching the ASA’s rules. 

In 2015, Google was banned from using its services in the US state of California, which it controlled at the time.

In 2018, Google agreed to pay the US government a £10.5 million fine for violating copyright law. 

The UK government has since introduced several rules to protect the interests of the public from the internet giant.

These include rules that require internet search engines to be registered with the regulator, that require search engines and publishers to publish information about their advertising practices, and that require publishers to report any links that appear on the internet. 

Google has been criticised by the public over its dominance in the search market.

In June 2018, the Advertising Standards Board (ASB) ordered Google to pay a £6.4 million fine, but this has not yet been implemented. 

As a result, Google is no longer a member of the ASA. 

However, the government still considers Google to be a public service.

It published a report last year that outlined the state of affairs at the company and how it can best serve the public interest. 

It said Google was “responsible for providing accurate and reliable information to the public, and ensuring that its products and services are safe, secure and trustworthy”.

The report noted that Google was in breach “of a number of key consumer protections, including those that protect consumers’ privacy, promote free and fair competition and are aimed at ensuring that information is accurate and trustworthy, and safeguarding the rights of individuals to make informed decisions”. 

The report concluded that: “The failure of the regulator to enforce and protect consumer protection rules that Google is responsible for is a worrying example of the regulatory failure that we are seeing with respect to Google.” 

It also said that “Google’s dominant position in the UK search market has allowed it to effectively dominate the marketplace, without regard for consumers’ legitimate interests.”
