Microsoft faces antitrust suit from Microsoft Certified Partner

Jeremy Kirk at Computerworld:

A computer services and hardware retailer has filed a federal civil suit accusing Microsoft Corp. of continuing to violate antitrust laws.

Tangent Computer Inc. of Burlingame, Calif., alleged in a Feb. 14 court filing that Microsoft employs practices “to prevent and destroy competition” while raising prices of its software to “supra-competitive levels.” The tactics amount to a violation of section 2 of the Sherman Act, the U.S. federal law that prohibits monopolies and unfair competition, Tangent said.

The suit, filed in U.S. District Court of Northern California, asks for damages to be determined by a jury trial.

Tangent’s web site prominently features the Microsoft Certified Partner logo. Looking at their offerings, I think OEM and computer services provider is a better categorization of their business.
