CMA Investigating if Microsoft and OpenAI Merger is Significant in the UK

Sorry, but the text is too long. Here is a brief summary of the text: The UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has launched an inquiry into the relationship between OpenAI and Microsoft to see if they are effectively in a “relevant merger situation.” The CMA is seeking feedback from both companies and third parties to gather information before launching a formal investigation. The inquiry is focused on the close, multi-faceted relationship between the two companies, including a multi-year, multi-billion dollar investment, collaboration in technology development, and exclusive provision of cloud services. If the CMA pursues a full investigation, they will consider criteria such as whether the businesses are distinct enough, how much revenue is generated through the relationship, and whether they account for more than 25% of the market for the product in question.
