Microsoft files EU competition complaint against Google


The software giant Microsoft has filed a complaint to the European Union against its arch rivals the Google. The complaint stated that Google has taking some steps firmly to cease the works that are being carried out in the European countries. This filling of complaint has made the eyebrows of many to rise. Microsoft which is a software giant was founded in the year 1978 by Bill Gates and his friend, Paul Allen. Right from the beginning it had the progress in a very steady and fast manner. It had reached the homes of millions all across the globe with its innovative ideas and qualitative products. None can deny the fact that the products from the Microsoft have played a very important role in transforming the entire world with one blow of technology. On the other hand, the Google was set up in the year 1998 by Sergey M. Brin and Lawrence E. Page. It is known for its powerful search engine Google. As Microsoft has too got a search engine by the name Bing, which is highly competitive with Google in the European countries. There was a heated exchange of words between these two regarding the competitiveness among them in terms of business in the European continent. Google has got somewhere around ninety percent of the internet market in the Europe. On the other hand, the Bing which is a search engine is trying to make its routes in the continent. In the same time the Google has been facing the same charges from three small business firms of the countries on the same basis. One among them is a partner company of the Microsoft. The European Union antitrust regulators are already carrying out the process of investigating the Google as three charges have already been filed against it. As these new allegations are a heavy blow to Google, it is being expected that any small move from Google will result in heavy penalization as it is very strictly said and done that the European Union watch dog is very much particular in this. Smith who is the assistant director in a multinational firm in Europe, has very clearly stated that Google has got all freedom in our continent to innovatively bring in new ideas for the betterment of technology but it will not be nice if Google makes others stumble and put a barricade on the progress of others.
