Last week investigators from China's State Administration for Industry and Commerce raided Microsoft facilities in four Chinese cities, claiming it is investigating whether Microsoft violated China’s anti-monopoly laws. These trumped up charges are part of a broader effort by the Chinese government to hobble U.S. technology companies in China, promote China’s domestic IT industry and ultimately replace the U.S. as the world’s IT leader. Rob Atkinson argues in The Hill that the only thing that will stop this is determined and resolute action from the U.S. government, in concert with our European allies, to say “enough is enough.”
