American SW companies can design their software how ever the hell they like. However, if they want to sell it inside the EU then they have to not indulge in anti-competitive practices. You American's would benefit if you government was a bit more keen of companies not indulging in anti-competitive practices. Then you'd be paying less for your cell phones.

The EU can go get bent. Who are they to tell an American Company how to design their software. Don't like it, use something else. and while your at it, please come and get Piers Morgan and take him home, We don't need him telling us how to run our country either.

This is actually a "fund the EU " tax. They need to sue Ford for including a radio in their vehicles.

Its actually the opera tax! EC want Microsoft to install other non-IE browsers for users, if they selects the option. Does the commission thinks Europeans don't even know how to download and install a browser if they want to?
