Microsoft's EU antitrust appeal lost
27 Jun, 2012
Microsoft has lost a long running antitrust appeal in the EU General Court, who said it ‘essentially upholds the Commission’s decision’, according to the BBC.
The software giant was fined €899 million four years ago for failing to comply with orders given in 2004 to provide specific pieces of product information to competitors.
Despite the upholding of the ruling, the fine has been reduced to €860 million, after Microsoft argued that the original sum was ‘excessive and undeserved’.
