Land of trouble - Property - The Sofia Echo
ROOM WITH A VIEW: Land and forests in scenic areas were among the first to be targeted for land swops, for their potential property redevelopment value. Photo: Bissera Lenkova Two months after Bulgaria was asked by the European Commission to clarify its position on the controversial land swops, the Government has finally made up its mind and plans to argue that they were criminal acts and should not be regarded as state aid. The official Cabinet position was to be sent to the European Commission’s directorate-general for competition, which in February asked Bulgaria to provide any arguments why the land swops should not be ... market research, surveys and trends


Intel Fined Over €1 Billion For Violation Of European Antitrust ...
a record €1.06 billion ($1.45 billion) for abusing its dominance in the market for computer chips to exclude its biggest (and frankly, the only serious) rival AMD by paying computer manufacturers Acer, Dell, HP, Lenovo, and NEC as well as retailers to postpone, cancel or downright avoid using or selling the latter’s products. That’s one hell of a fine, considering the previous record for similar abuses in the EU was ‘only’ €497 million (Microsoft, back in 2004). The European Commission has ordered Intel to stop the exclusion practices immediately, and said it would closely and actively monitor ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

a record €1.06 billion, or about $1.446 billion, for abusing its dominance in the computer chip market to exclude longtime rival AMD . ( techmeme ) The move comes just a day after Intel CEO Paul Otellini was reported to say that chip orders for Q2 2009 have been “a little better than we expected” and refused to comment on the antitrust case. The E.U. competition commissioner, Neelie Kroes, said the penalty against the world’s largest chip maker was justified because the company had skewed competition and robbed consumers of choice. Kroes said Intel “used illegal anticompetitive practices to exclude its ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

The Smell of Neutrality in the Air
For most people, the arrival of summer means longer days, sunny vacations, and weekends spent around the barbecue. For telecommunications regulators, this summer has something else on the agenda: net neutrality. During the final two weeks of June, regulators in no less than four jurisdictions took major steps to address net neutrality in some fashion: In the US, the FCC launched its Notice of Inquiry about broadband Internet jurisdiction on June 17. In the UK, Ofcom launched its most significant effort on net neutrality to date, publishing a discussion document and launching a discussion process on June 24. In Brussels, the EU’s ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Microsoft to sell Windows in EU without browser • mozillaZine Forums
That is what I said. It is the job of the EU Directorate-General for Competition to do what is legally required to preserve competition including protecting EU companies. There's a difference between preserving competition, and not stifling it. Either way the more I hear the less I like this decision. If the scenario is indeed as you describe it, then Opera is the company that stands to gain, given how the other three major browser vendors (Apple, Google, Mozilla) are non-EU companies, and the decisions made will be ones intended to benefit Opera instead of enforcing justice.
