ECIS welcomes Commission Decision finding Microsoft infringed Article 82

The European Commission has issued a Decision finding that Microsoft Corporation infringed European Union competition law by leveraging its near monopoly in the market for PC operating systems (OS) onto the markets for work group server operating systems by refusing to make available interface information and on the market for media players by tying Windows Media Player with the Windows PC OS. ECIS welcomes the Commission’s Decision, which restores competition on the merits and furthers true consumer choice.
