Microsoft – The pot calling the kettle black

Microsoft has called for a formal investigation into the plans for Google to buy DoubleClick on the basis of creating a monopoly. Which seams a bit hypocritical for a company that has already been found guilty of abusing its monopoly position to bully and intimidate the competition and its own resellers.

See: VNU News – FTC Opens Investigation into Google DoubleClick deal.

The same Microsoft had tried to purchase DoubleClick themselves in March. Could this be a case of sour grapes?
