The European Commission announced that it would launch an investigation into these investments to determine whether a formal investigation is required under EU competition law.

Microsoft, OpenAI’s main investor, owns 49% of the company’s nonprofit, which is controlled by its board of directors.

In addition to the European Commission’s investigation, Britain and Germany also launched their own inspections. The UK Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) and the German Federal Competition Office (FCO) are investigating the relationship between the two companies.

The FCO warned that if Microsoft increased its influence over OpenAI it would require further antitrust assessments.

All this is happening against the background of a recent scandal regarding first the departure and then the return of the company’s founder, Sam Altman.
