China Launches Microsoft Antitrust Probe [pcworld.com]

China has launched an investigation into whether Microsoft unfairly dominates its software market, state media reported Wednesday.

A working committee of China's State Intellectual Property Office is investigating whether Microsoft engaged in discriminatory pricing, according to Xinhua Financial News. The committee will also look at Microsoft's practice of bundling other software programs within its Windows operating system, according to the report.

It seems this story was not accurate. China now says it is not probing Microsoft:

China denies antitrust probe of Microsoft [arstechnica.com]

According to a report from the Associated Press (AP), China's State Intellectual Property Office has released a statement denying that Microsoft is under investigation, calling such accusations "seriously untrue." The bureau stated that it has never conducted a monopoly investigation aimed at a large enterprise, and currently has no plans to do so.
