EU antitrust regulators are following up on a complaint by Slack Technologies by asking Microsoft 's rivals if its Teams app integrated with its Office product gives it greater clout, in a sign that they could open an investigation . In a questionnaire sent to rivals and seen by Reuters, the European Microsoft , which has been handed 2.2 billion euros (.6 billion) in EU fines for cases involving so-called tying and other practices in previous decade, declined to comment.

The EU has apparently initiated preliminary investigations to find out if the deep integration of teams in the Microsoft ecosystem hinder the fair competition. The initiator of the complaint is likely to have no interest in it.

The story started in July 2020: At the time Slack in Person of his CEO Stewart Butterfield criticized the integration of teams in Microsoft 365 and threw the redmailing to destroy Slack. In a formal complaint that one submitted to the EU, it was said:

"Microsoft has abused the dominuous position of the Office Suite in an illegal way to involve its product teams, the installation on millions of devices enforced and the removal of the software is difficult As well as the true cost of the companies is concealed. "

EU Enforcement. European competition law is modeled on US law. The EU also forbids state aid that. hampers competition among member states. before members of the case team and members of the Legal Service and. other directorates. Judicial review in the US can prompt a new investigation of the case. This does not apply to EU judicial review that can only annul a decision.

Rather, competition law should try to translate general insights about error costs into legal tests. The specific characteristics of many digital markets have arguably changed the balance of error cost and implementation costs, such that some modifications of the established tests, including allocation of the burden of proof and definition of the standard of proof, may be called for. In particular, in the context of highly concentrated markets characterised by strong network effects and high barriers to entry (i.e. not easily corrected by markets themselves), one may want to err on the side of disallowing potentially

as reported by news magazine Reuters (via ZDNET ), the EU has now launched a kind of preliminary investigation and sent a questionnaire to various companies that offer competing solutions to teams.

In this, the competitors should specify whether they are generally bundled software for a problem and whether providers are getting into data that gives them a competitive advantage and thus allow them to expand their market power.

In addition, the commissars want to know if it becomes more difficult for customers to use an alternative product, and what costs can arise.

In addition, concrete examples are requested whether customers of competitors are migrated to Microsoft Teams, which were associated with sales losses and what influence the overall innovative strength and the quality and price of the competitors had.

Last But Not Least is also asked the assessment of which influence the Corona pandemic had to use appropriate software.

The questionnaire may be confidently seen as a kind of steep template for competitors such as zoom to argue against Microsoft and teams. That could, in fact, could still develop a very unpleasant number for Microsoft.

The irony in this matter: Meanwhile, Slack was taken over by Salesforce, so it is no longer independent. You do not have to be a clairvoyant to ancestain that Salesforce will be woven much stronger with Slack in the future. So if the EU initiates concrete steps, you could also hinder the plans of the new owner.
