The Microsoft and Google have agreed to become the good competitors by ending the long run regulatory battle. Both companies are agreed on the settlement and dropping the case against each other. Also, they’ve decided to work together to solve issues without taking it in court or regulators.
A Microsoft employee said that the company has decided to drop all cases against Google due to change in Legal priorities. The Google also announced that they will release all complaints made against Microsoft. Both the companies agreed to work and compete by Products and Service, not on Legal battles. The Microsoft is not taking any part in the investigation in the case by European commission’s Antitrust case against Google. Also, the Microsoft left the membership of the FairSeach and ICOM, which are the groups which support antitrust actions against Google and their business.
Both the companies were fighting like a child over every issue instead of solving it with mutual concerns. But now, the Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Google CEO Sundar Pichai are on their way to resolving the longtime issue of fighting on small problems. After the Satya Nadella had appointed as CEO, the Microsoft has tightened the bond with Android Operating System environment and launched many apps for the Android users.
Microsoft and Google signed a deal last year in September, in which they decided to end the 20 Patent confliction between the business and drop the lawsuit against each other.
