The European Floodgate Has Opened- European Commission Initiates Two New Antitrust Investigations Against Microsoft

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

No doubt emboldened from its success in the CFI's judgment against Microsoft in September, the Commission has gone on the offensive again against Microsoft by initiating two new investigations.  According to the press release, "The first case where proceedings have been opened is in the field of interoperability in relation to a complaint by the European Committee for Interoperable Systems (ECIS). The second area where proceedings have been opened is in the field of tying of separate software products following inter alia a complaint by Opera."
