 Μάλλον όλοι το έχετε ήδη διαβάσει, αλλά το παραθέτω..
David Gerard writes "From Groklaw: Heidi Rühle, a Green Party MEP, has 
presented a question regarding whether or not Microsoft should be considered 
as having failed to fulfill the conditions to participate in public 
procurement procedures in Europe, as laid out in Article 93(b) and (c) of 
Financial Regulation — '(b) they have been convicted of an offense concerning 
their professional conduct by a judgment which has the force of res judicata; 
(c) they have been guilty of grave professional misconduct proven by any 
means which the contracting authority can justify' — and the Commission 
anti-trust penalty just happens to fulfill both of those conditions." The EU 
Commission is required to respond within 6 weeks to such a question from a 
member of Parliament.
