Did the MathWorks Infringe the Competition Laws?

Posted by Soeren Sonnenburg on March 2, 2012

I have just read that the EU commission is investigating whether The MathWorks did infringe the EU competition laws potentially related to its software Matlab and Simulink. An unnamed competitor made an appeal to the EU commission claiming that the MathWorks refused to provide a license for Matlab/Simulink to that certain competitor. This hinders making the competing product interoperable and makes it impossible for the competitor to perform (rightful!) reverse engineering in that case.
