Oracle Investigated Over HP ‘Eviction Strategy’ Complaint

Oracle Corp. is under investigation by France’s competition regulator after Hewlett-Packard Co. complained that Oracle used discriminatory practices on its licensing and support for products based on Intel Corp. systems.

The competition authority said it opened a probe to examine Hewlett-Packard’s July complaint that Oracle’s refusal to support Intel’s Itanium systems would be an abuse of dominant position, and that its license pricing was “decided unilaterally.”
