Microsoft is in trouble again. This time, Tangent Computer Inc. has filed lengthy documents in a northern California court seeking undisclosed damages and alleging that MS continues to damage it’s business through non-compliance with the previous antitrust ruling.
After running through the history of the PC, Tangent alleges that Microsoft has still failed to comply with a number of instructions and continues to violate Section 2 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C., §2.
It has charged “artificially inflated prices for its operating system software,” injuring Tangent, it’s alleged. Because of “exclusionary practices”, Microsoft has been able to “increase, maintain, or stabilise prices at anticompetive levels” without the constraint of competitors.
