Regulators Meet on Proposal to Brand Microsoft a Monopolist: “On Monday, top antitrust regulators from the 15 nations in the European Union will gather here in the Centre Borschette, a bunkerlike building a stone's throw from the headquarters of the European Commission, to discuss a draft ruling that finds Microsoft guilty of abusing its dominance in operating software.” [Universal Rule]


well this proposal, if it occurs, would not remove their monopoly power, it would only allow competition in one industry. that is the wrong way to go. eu should demand that microsoft create a new company for their media tools.
