In Europe, Google has been on the receiving end of significant backlash, causing it not only to become "a glaring proxy for criticism of an intrusive American government," but also to blame it for the tech dominance of American companies.

The backlash in Europe extends beyond Google. Taxi drivers from London to Madrid have demonstrated against Uber, the American ride-sharing company that was recently banned in Germany.

Google, with its broad reach, is arguably facing the most pressure.
