Desk Cleaning

leave a comment »

Massive desk cleaning operations are currently taking place in Brussels.

Following its decision to close proceedings against Qualcomm a few weeks ago, the Commission closed last week infringement proceedings against Rambus, and did just the same today in the Microsoft case. In the latter two cases, the Commission accepted commitments submitted by the firms under investigation. In both cases, the Commission adopted an Article 9 decision, which renders those commitments binding.

Again, I was right a few weeks ago.
