Europe to say no to AOL, Time-Warner, EMI merger

<< The European Union looks set to block AOL's $132 billion
acquisition of Time-Warner, and the latter's' music label merger
with EMI, on the grounds that the deals, if allowed to go ahead,
would be anti-competitive.

According to a leaked preliminary ruling from the European
Commission, the merger "would create a dominant position in
the markets for online music delivery, music software, Internet
dial-up access, broadband Internet access and integrated
broadband content as a result of which effective competition
would be significantly impeded...

"The more content AOL acquires and the bigger its community
of users, the less reasons for a subscriber to abandon AOL's
walled garden and the more reasons for potential Internet users
to join AOL," claims the Commission.
The leaked report is only a preliminary document, and the
Commission will meet representatives from AOL, Time-Warner
and EMI before it has to make an official pronouncement on the
mergers. The verdict on the EMI/Warner merger will take place
before 18 October, and on the AOL/Time-Warner by 24
October. Commission insiders, however, reckon the
organisation's decisions will be revealed by 4 October,
according to Reuters. >>
