Microsoft’s bundling of Teams may have violated EU antitrust rules – Computerworld

Neither effort apparently did anything to dissuade the Commission from considering Microsoft in violation of competition rules, a decision that was foreshadowed when the Competition said in May that it planned to include Teams in its inivestigation of Microsoft for anticompetitive practices despite the company’s concessions.

For its part, Microsoft plans to continue to address remaining concerns the Commission has over Teams as it awaits further decisions by the Commission, such as what, if any, financial consequences the company will face.

“Having unbundled Teams and taken initial interoperability steps, we appreciate the additional clarity provided today and will work to find solutions to address the Commission’s remaining concerns,” Brad Smith, Microsoft vice chair and president, said in a statement emailed to Computerworld.
