Be, Inc. files lawsuit against Microsoft; claims anticompetitive business practices

Be Incorporated announced today it has filed suit against Microsoft Corporation for the destruction of Be’s business resulting from the anticompetitive business practices of Microsoft. The lawsuit alleges, among other claims, that Microsoft harmed Be through a series of illegal exclusionary and anticompetitive acts designed to maintain its monopoly in the Intel-compatible PC operating system market and created exclusive dealing arrangements with PC OEMs prohibiting the sale of PCs with multiple preinstalled operating systems. Be has retained the law firm of Susman Godfrey L.L.P. on a contingent fee basis to represent Be and to seek recovery of damages for the benefit of the company and its stockholders. The suit has been filed in the United States District Court in San Francisco. A copy of the complaint will be made available on Be’s website here.
