Document en anglais. Réflexion à partir des documents de la BBC sur le sujet. Les procès à répétition contre Microsoft et ses pratiques anticoncurrentielles, intentés par la Commission Européenne, visent ils seulement à nettoyer le marché commun de ces comportements ou y'a-t-il plus que cela en jeu?
[...] What the European Commission blames Microsoft isn't its leadership in the networks world but the situation of monopoly it tries to impose in Europe, by locking its customers more than developing fidelity from them. That's second reason : the pursuits of the European Commission are made to clean up this sector from the bad practices. The consequence of the convictions should be a reduction of the market share of Microsoft, according to the European competition commissioner. He hopes a renewed competition, benefiting to the states and to the consumers. Through this presentation of the motivations of the European Commission, we see the concept of protection of the liberties of the European consumers. [...]
[...] It is understandable to guarantee the best protection of the European people. It is regrettable that a company, certainly little cooperative, made expenses of the European Commission's will.

On the contrary, the European Union is trying to impose its view of society, and to protect the consumers and the computer science industry in Europe against Microsoft. I More than money : an outlook of society A Restoring a loyal, transparent competition in a bipolar sector As the processor world is dominated by Intel and AMD, the software world is manifestly controlled by Apple and Microsoft.

[...] Even if the firm has already injected million of dollars in their products, the European Commission doesn't care. The regulator has not to decide only towards the economic consequences. The European Commission intends to protect the consumers, their freedom of choice It wants to let the economic market play on the pure basis of the liberal laws.
