MathWorks Software Licenses Probed by EU Antitrust Regulators

MathWorks Inc., a maker of product-design software for engineers, is being investigated by European Union antitrust regulators over its refusal to supply a rival with information to help it make compatible products.

The European Commission said it will check whether closely held MathWorks rejected a competitor’s request for end-user licenses and interoperability information to prevent it from “reverse engineering” or analyzing software code to make products that worked with MathWorks’ Simulink and MATLAB software, used in car design and other industries.
