Bill Gates Says Tech Giants Should Be Probed Separately If Regulators 'Want To Get Serious' About Antitrust Concerns

Bill Gates Says Tech Giants Should Be Probed Separately If Regulators 'Want To Get Serious' About Antitrust Concerns. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) co-founder Bill Gates said Thursday at the GeekWire Summit that a more in-depth and company-specific approach is required by regulators in antitrust matters, CNBC reported. What Happened: The former executive touched on the subject of U.S. regulators probing Amazon.com, Inc (NASDAQ: AMZN), Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ: GOOGL) (NASDAQ: GOOG), Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB), and Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL). Gates also drew from his own experiences related to facing antitrust heat against Microsoft in the 1990s. When asked to advise Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, he said it was important to develop political relationships. “I think the main mistake I made, which was not realizing how important it would be to develop relationships in Washington, be engaged there,” said Gates.
