Microsoft's Tokyo offices raided

OwlWhacker writes "Officials from Japan's fair trade watchdog have raided Microsoft's Tokyo offices on suspicion of anti-monopoly law violations, authorities said.

A Microsoft spokeswoman confirmed that the Fair Trade Commission inspected the software company's headquarters.

The commission said it believed the US giant had attached unfair conditions when signing software deals with Japanese computer manufacturers.

Microsoft said it was looking into the reasons for the raid."
