Microsoft, Google agree to play nice and stop complaining to regulators
OREANDA-NEWS. April 25, 2016. Remember when pretty much all the major tech company started suing each other over their phones, software and wireless intellectual property Microsoft and Google are calling that fight quits.
"Microsoft has agreed to withdraw its regulatory complaints against Google, reflecting our changing legal priorities," wrote a Microsoft representative. "We will continue to focus on competing vigorously for business and for customers."
Well, isn't that nice. Google offered up a similar statement.
"Our companies compete vigorously, but we want to do so on the merits of our products, not in legal proceedings," said Google. "As a result, following our patent agreement, we've now agreed to withdraw regulatory complaints against one another."
