La sentenza sui CFI di Microsoft: "Un grande giorno per le aziende e i consumatori europei."

La sentenza sui CFI di Microsoft: "Un grande giorno per le aziende e i consumatori europei."

LUSSEMBURGO, September 17 /PRNewswire/ -- "Oggi è un grande giorno per le aziende e i consumatori europei," ha dichiarato Thomas Vinje, portavoce di ECIS e consulente legale. "Finalmente questa decisione apre a una maggiore e più dinamica concorrenza nel settore del software. Non ci sono più utenti bloccati, non più prezzi da monopolio."

"La Commissione Europea, il membro della commissione Kroes, l'ex membro della commissione Monti e i loro funzionari devono essere elogiati per la loro visione e costanza in questi 10 estenuanti anni con Microsoft."

"Per Microsoft adesso è venuto il momento di dover obbedire alla legge. Non è più possibile accusare la Commissione di mancare di chiarezza, e non ci sono più scuse che si appellano alla complessità. La clausola delle informazioni per l'interoperabilità è una prassi comune del settore software. Microsoft sa bene cosa occorre e come metterla a disposizione, e adesso deve solo tradurre tutto questo in pratica."

"Inoltre questa sentenza è una pietra miliare che definisce in modo chiaro la condotta futura di Microsoft, e dà alla Commissione Europea i poteri necessari per farla imporre nel mercato europeo, quando necessario. Va sottolineato che la sentenza è perfettamente coerente con la giurisprudenza, che dagli anni settanta ha dimostrato che la Commissione ha applicato la legge europea sull'antitrust in modo coerente e appropriato nei mercati dell'IT per assicurare condizioni di concorrenza corretta basate sulla interoperabilità."

"Questa decisione sta ad indicare che nessuna società, anche se occupa una posizione di dominio, è al di sopra della legge."

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
