Kick backs and selling below cost are both illegal activities in the EU.
All that companies like IBM and RHAT need to do is file an anti-trust
complaint about it and bob is your uncle, micoshaft is in the docks AGAIN
along with its co-conspirators. The directors of Asus, MSI, Acer and other
Taiwan companies had better watch out in accepting micoshaft bribe money or
enter into agreements to sell products below cost. Its all illegal and they
could face the wrath of the courts as Korean and Japanese memory
makers once found out.
