Vivendi/Activision Approved

EU approves Vivendi purchase of Activision (thanks Mike Martinez) has news that the Vivendi/Activision merger/purchase (story) has met with approval from The European Commission, who did not deem the deal a danger to fair competition.

Microsoft wasn't fined because it was a US company but because it broke competition laws. Simple as.
