Google accused Microsoft in a proxy war.

As is known, in late February, the EU began antitrust investigation against Google, launched by small companies, close to Microsoft. It turns out that this is not an isolated case. The Wall Street Journal cites evidence of so-called "proxy wars", that is a global campaign, which was organized by Microsoft against Google smallest third of firms and, at first glance, unrelated to each other cases. Such "competition" of affairs is becoming more and more, they start in individual countries and towns of the United States, but, surprisingly, against Google, they serve the best-paid lawyers from law firms, and sometimes the "former" top lawyers Microsoft, is now supposedly Leading independent legal business. For example, a small business firm in Ohio against Google is famous Charles Ruhl (Charles "Rick" Rule), the former head of the Antimonopoly Committee of the Ministry of Justice.

According to analysts, in the near future we can expect that many small business will merge into one large-scale trial of an online "monopoly" Google. The results can be catastrophic, such as results of the antitrust case against Microsoft in the late 90's. The corporation has failed to fix its image after the widely publicized trial. Before it begins, it was a promising innovative company, and after the process it has become in the eyes of the public in a monopoly and "evil corporation", and can not change that image so far.

Microsoft rejected the accusations in the initiation of claims, but confirms its readiness to provide legal assistance in the preparation of claims to all victims of any kind was a monopoly. With the participation of Microsoft in Europe, an organization ICOMP (Initiative for a Competitive Online Marketplace), the sole target of legal claims, which is so far only one company. Of course, this is Google.
