Steve writes: "Hungary's state Competition Authority raided the offices of Microsoft Corp.'s local subsidiary as part of a probe into the company's relationship with large software distributors. The raid took place at the offices of Microsoft Magyarorszag Kft., and was spurred by reports of Microsoft using a potentially illegal trade practice referred to as "loyalty discounts". The intent "loyalty discounts" is to influence distributors so they won't offer clients anything but Microsoft Office products, a behavior that may violate European Union rules."
