The European Union Begins a Procedure against Samsung Antitrust

Bad news for the interests of the Korean company. The European Commission has now opened an investigation against Samsung for having broken antitrust rules in the European market of mobile devices. This process is completely parallel to the wars of patents that occasionally we have us echoed in the blog.

The reason that started the investigation has been the alleged non-compliance related with a number of telephony in Europe patents. As he picks up the press release from the European Commission Samsung had pledged in 1998 to implement a series of mobile phone standards.

The Commission will investigate if this lack of commitment is due to a simple mistake or a strategy to not share with other companies and therefore essential patents benefit from it and achieve a dominant position in the market. To avoid this kind of situations they had to sign a series of agreements, including the FRAND.

An agreement, whose initials correspond to Fair, Reasonable and Non Discriminatory, which would avoid unfavorable situations within the telecommunications market. Always keeping an agreement that is fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory as pray its acronym. According to the Samsung Europe Union has violated this agreement, now plays investigate whether this has served to obtain an advantageous situation.

Either way, the process has already begun and Samsung is aware of the case. Now it remains to be seen how it runs and what decision the European Union. If we consider the case of Microsoft in Europe with the violation of the antitrust rules are that the Community body This issue is not taken lightly.
