EU investigation into Open XML vote still ongoing
Posted by Martin LaMonica Post a comment
European antitrust regulators are investigating whether Microsoft
abused its desktop software market dominance in its effort to
standardize the Office Open XML file formats.
The European Commission's antitrust regulatory body sent queries
to several European countries to see how the standards-setting
process was working, a spokesperson confirmed on Wednesday.
The investigation is still ongoing, he added.
The effort stems from a complaint lodged by anti-Microsoft
lobbying group ECIS (European Commission for Interoperable
Systems). The Commission said in January that it is exploring
whether the Open XML file formats are sufficiently interoperable
with competitors' products.
