The Taiwan branch of Dell, the world’s third-largest PC maker, was fined NT$2
million (US$65,600) Wednesday by Taiwan’s Fair Trade Commission (FTC) for taking action to restrain competition.
Dell Taiwan was found to have violated fair trade rules pertaining to “causing another enterprise to discontinue supply, purchase or other business transactions with a particular enterprise for the purpose of injuring that enterprise,” the FTC said in a statement.
