Here's the FIFY:

Also said as:
- since the US product is so good the EU cannot compete so they fine and take some of the profits anyway*

* For example, fining Google because (1) they put paid advertisers ahead of others in the search - even though that has always been their business model and never a secret, and (2) Google has over 90% of the EU search traffic so they're a monopoly. Who's fault is (2)? It's substantially lower in the US (we use Yahoo, Bing, etc.) and the fact that no EU web-search product is worth the time to type in the address-bar is another problem the thieves in Brussels cannot stand for. The EU is taking a cue from an old USA proverb "The power to tax is the power to destroy". In our case, it's a seperation-of-church-and-state thing, but in your case, it's a clue on how to compete in business when you're not good enough to compete.
