Microsoft vows to change cloud computing practices to stave off EU investigation: report
In a move to assuage European regulatory officials, Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) says it will change its cloud computing practices to settle antitrust complaints filed by its smaller rivals, according to a Reuters report. The software giant has presented a proposal to stave off an EU investigation, building on last year's announcement by Microsoft President Brad Smith, the report said, citing a person with direct knowledge of the matter. A Microsoft spokesperson issued the following statement: "In October 2022, we introduced changes to our licensing practices that address the feedback that we heard from European cloud providers. We are committed to the European Cloud Community and their success."
