Abstract
On 17-9-2001 not surprisingly newspapers were splashed with the news: "Microsoft Corp dragged to CCI for abusing dominant position".' The instant complaint^ has been filed before CCI by Singhania & Partners against Microsoft alleging that after quoting for original equipment manufacturer (OEM) licences,^ at the time of delivery tried to coerce the law firm by insisting on granting them volume licence, which would cost the firm double the price. The complaint alleges that Microsoft is abusing its dominant market position by indulging in "differential" and "discriminatory" pricing. The present complaint has been filed under Section 4 of the Competition Act, 2002," The Commission is yet to take a view on it.
