Unintended consequences

So basically one way for OEMs to avoid these sorts of fines are to quit supporting them with software updates if they aren't 100% certain the performance will not degrade. If Samsung didn't offer a major Android update (i.e. Android 7 to 8 or whatever) in Italy to avoid that potential, would the Italians be ending up better or worse off as a result of that fine?
