Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

An Unprecedented Fine

with one comment


There’s a big storm coming.

Tomorrow, the Commission will slap  yet another stratospheric fine against Microsoft.

We’re told that Microsoft did not implement the “browser choice” remedy negotiated with the Commission in 2009.

Worst: this is apparently due to an internal communication failure.

Alfonso blogged about this a while ago (meanwhile disclosing his core musical tastes).

Because the Commission understandably wants compliance but may be reluctant to micro-monitor the implementation of settlements, the fine will likely be high.

But how high?

  1. “Internal communication failure”???. Such a Big-Mac firm?. On reputational terms, Mr. Ballmer should rather be considered a premeditated offender instead of an idiot
