European Commission Satisfied with IBM's Practices

As The Mainframe Blog and other outlets reported this past September, the European Commission and IBM reached agreement on a competitors' complaint concerning mainframe hardware maintenance services. IBM proposed changes in how it supplies mainframe spare parts and technical documentation. However, the European Commission wanted to hear comments from interested parties about IBM's proposed solution.

After that comment period, the European Commission is still satisfied.

In separate action, the European Commission is seeking more information on whether Google's proposed acquisition of Motorola Mobility runs afoul of European competition rules.
