I don't know if this is the right place, but in our startup, we were discussing the distant future for us. Suppose a software company just sells superior software a low cost and overall becomes the number one supplier of the products. Its competitors can't keep up because:
- the company releases updates quickly with the updates targeting biggest user complaints
- the company regularly prices its software at a low cost (not reducing them to sweep out competition, but let's say their development is quicker and smoother, so they can afford to charge less)
- the company has tied in a variety of products, such that there is a mutual login system, internal advertisements of other company products, etc. Not tying in the legal sense, since each product works well on its own, but basically making life easier for users if they just end up using all of the company's products
- the company is known for being good to its employees, customers, and even competition (in the sense that they don't undermine other products; their own are just better)
and other similar and to my mind perfectly legal reasons. So for these reasons, there are few if any competitors.
Would this company be guilty of monopolizing? Could this company be sued for anything similar, given the above description?
