Details on Microsoft Corporation (MSFT)’s Investigations in China Over Monopoly Allegations

More than a hundred offices across the country have been raided by Chinese authorities that were seeking to get more information on how the company bundles its software and adds security features. In addition to that, the government has set its eye on some senior Microsoft officials in China and has stated that many of the employees have been out of reach. It further urged the company to cooperate with the authorities. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has quickly responded to the request, confirming that it had been visited by the Chinese officials and saying that it will be happy to answer on all questions.

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) faces scrutiny after the U.S. has repeatedly accused China of cyber-theft, allegations which were denied by Chinese authorities, CNBC said.

The software giant is about to release its Xbox One in China in a few weeks, becoming the first gaming console to be put up for sale in the country after a 2000 ban on console sales was lifted.  In contrast to this positive development, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s latest operating system, Windows 8.1 has been banned from government computers, in a surprise move by Chinese authorities.
