Eccola. Questa la risposta ufficiale di Google all’OPA ostile di Microsoft su Yahoo! Google ci va giù pesante, come potrete notare.
So Microsoft’s hostile bid for Yahoo! raises troubling questions. This
is about more than simply a financial transaction, one company taking
over another. It’s about preserving the underlying principles of the
Internet: openness and innovation
Could Microsoft now attempt to exert the same sort of inappropriate and
illegal influence over the Internet that it did with the PC? While the
Internet rewards competitive innovation, Microsoft has frequently
sought to establish proprietary monopolies – and then leverage its
dominance into new, adjacent markets.
Domanda con affondo finale (bellissimo quall’unfair practices).
Could the acquisition of Yahoo! allow Microsoft – despite its legacy
of serious legal and regulatory offenses – to extend unfair practices
from browsers and operating systems to the Internet?
Nessuna risposta da Microsoft, ad oggi.
