Microsoft Hit with $613M EU Fine
The European Commission has fined Microsoft a record US $613 million (497.2 million euro) after it found the company abused its "virtual monopoly" with its Windows operating system and broke European antitrust law governing competition. EU Competition Commissioner Mario Monti said the EU found that Microsoft "has abused its virtual monopoly power over the PC desktop in Europe. This is not a decision we have taken easily or hastily."
