Philips Marsden of BIICL has a wonderfully titled piece on the impact of the EU Microsoft decision Microsoft versus the Commission: With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility.
ABSTRACT: In the Spiderman stories we are told that ‘with great power comes great responsibility’. The Court of First Instance has confirmed that dominant firms such as Microsoft have a special responsibility to help their rivals. The European Commission should be even more responsible when proceeding against dominant firms and issuing guidance on Article 82.
