Europe Could Hit Microsoft With $7B+ Fine Over New Internet Explorer Antitrust Violations

Looks like the European Commission is following through on what it’s been reportedly planning to do for weeks: it has filed a formal complaint against Microsoft for antitrust violations related to Internet Explorer and giving consumers a clear way to choose another browser when using Microsoft’s Windows operating system. The violation could cost Microsoft billions in fines — the maximum penalty, the European Commission notes, is 10% of the company’s annual turnover.

Going by fiscal year 2012′s annual revenues of $73 billion, that could mean a fine of $7.3 billion. (!!!)
