Abstract: Though antitrust suits were not new to Microsoft, the company's bitter battle with the European Commission of Competition attracted much attention and speculation. The Commission, headed by Mario Monti, alleged that Microsoft was leveraging its monopoly in the operating system market to dictate the server software and the media player market. The case was crucial to Microsoft as it was squaring off against one of the most powerful persons in Europe – Mario Monti, who rose to fame after he blocked the high-profile GE-Honeywell merger.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss Microsoft's antitrust battles in the US and Europe
  • To discuss about Mario Monti’s stern actions against companies that violated European antitrust laws.
