ECIS accepted as intervenor in EC browser case

The European Commission recognised ECIS as an interested third party in support of the Commission’s preliminary findings that Microsoft is violating EU antitrust law by tying its Internet Explorer (IE) web browser to its dominant Windows operating system present on over 90% of all personal computers.
