Kaspersky Lab Backs Away from Microsoft Antitrust Complaint

Russia's Kaspersky Lab has temporarily backed off filing a competition complaint that Microsoft is abusing its market dominance to crowd out anti-virus software makers such as itself, founder and Chief Executive Eugene Kaspersky said. Instead, Kaspersky -- who threatened in November to complain to the European Commission -- said he would keep talking to Microsoft about changes he wants the U.S. software giant to make before deciding whether to press his case in a few months.
