Parliamentary questions
15 May 2013
E-003006/2013
Answer given by Mr Almunia on behalf of the Commission

In order to establish whether an infringement of Article 102 of the Treaty, on abuse of a dominant position, has taken place, it must first be demonstrated that a company holds a dominant position in a relevant market. Without prejudice to the precise market definition, there are a number of mobile operating systems on the market which provide similar services to Microsoft's. It therefore seems unlikely that Microsoft holds a dominant position on the market at present.

However, the Commission closely monitors developments in the market so as to ensure that competition, innovation and a level playing field are preserved amongst all market players.
