MOSCOW, November 10. /TASS/. The Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) has initiated a case against Microsoft on grounds of signs of abuse of its dominant position on the market, Deputy Head of FAS Anatoly Golomolzin said. The audio file with his statement was published on the Internet.
"The Federal Antimonopoly Service initiated proceedings against Microsoft over signs of violation of Article 10 of the law on competition relating to abuse of dominant position on the market," Golomolzin said.
The deputy head of the FAS said the Office asked the Kaspersky Lab anti-virus software manufacturer addressed to the regulator because Microsoft had reduced the time of adaptation for anti-virus software manufacturers from 2 months to 6 days.
"In this situation, anti-virus hardware manufacturers are not able to adapt to changing conditions and knowingly lose to Microsoft, which has its own anti-virus software," Golomolzin said.
