Microsoft fined by European Commission over web browser(32 posts)
SJ, if you own over 90% of the market, you have certain responsibilities.
And anyhow, MS was fined because they did not stick to an agreement. I am sure MS had an army of lawyers when the agreement was initially negotiated. But then they dropped dead on it and did nothing. That's why they got fined. They thought the EU would not follow up on it - now they know better and the next time they make agreements they will be more careful.
Yes, isn't Government wonderful. After leaving the large white tags proclaiming DO NOT REMOVE THIS TAG UNDER PENALTY OF LAW drooping from the bottom of all my furniture and pillows for many, many years I am glad to see they finally wised up and added "except by the consumer". I have my shears out and the weekend is coming.
