Microsoft loses in Europe - again
Posted by David Zaring

In a decision that suggests that Europe and America haven't yet managed to apply the same antitrust standards to companies that do business in both jurisdictions, the European Court of First Instance (just below the ECJ) has just ruled that Microsoft anticompetitively used its market dominance to freeze out competitor digital media players and invalidly refused to provide potential competitors with interoperability information.  It upheld the $689.4 million fine imposed on Microsoft in 2004 by the European Commission.  Here are a couple of news stories, here is the CFI press release; Danny Sokol has found the judgment, and with that, I will turn over commentary to the antitrust mavens at Truth on the Market and the Antitrust and Competition Policy Blog.
