Microsoft-EU anti-trust talks collapse

Friday, 19 March 2004, 1:35 AM EST

The European Commission's competition talks with Microsoft Corp. have collapsed, European Competition Commission Mario Monti said Thursday.

In a prepared statement read out to journalists Monti said that despite strenuous efforts by Microsoft to meet the European Commission's concerns, a settlement of the case "has not been possible."

"Therefore we will propose next Wednesday that the Commission adopts a decision," the competition commissioner said.

Monti added that a precedent setting legal ruling is in the best interest of consumers and competition.
