After the announcement of negotiating with byte hop to acquire tiktok’s business in the United States and other countries, recently, the news of “Microsoft’s cut off supply to China” was fermented, which caused quite intense attention and reaction in the domestic society. Microsoft officials urgently refuted this rumor, saying: “the commitment to provide services to Chinese users is unswerving.” < p > < p > industry observers pointed out to China Business Daily that, on the one hand, Microsoft has been deeply engaged in the domestic market for 28 years, and will not give up easily. On the other hand, the public’s response is very fierce, which highlights the public’s urgent willingness to independently control the software and hardware in the field of science and technology from infrastructure to cutting-edge technology Cheng speeded up his schedule. Recently, some users noticed that the terms of Microsoft’s “Microsoft Service Agreement” have been quietly updated. The exemption clauses and dispute settlement clauses are regarded as “Microsoft is preparing for China’s supply interruption”, causing an uproar. This is because of the plan to acquire tiktok business in the eyes of the storm Microsoft, is undoubtedly pushed to the forefront of public opinion. < p > < p > Microsoft urgently responded to the media, saying, “recently, some individual social media rumors about the global update of Microsoft’s terms of service do not conform to the facts. We are firmly committed to providing services to Chinese users. ” < / P > < p > the reporter noted that one of the exemption clauses in this dispute is that “Microsoft shall not be liable for the failure or delay in performing its obligations due to circumstances beyond Microsoft’s reasonable control (for example, labor disputes, force majeure, war and behavior, malicious damage, accident or compliance with any applicable law or government order), or Obligations. ” One expression on dispute resolution is that “these provisions will be governed by Washington law, whether there is a conflict of law principles or not. The state court or federal court in golden County, Washington, USA has non exclusive jurisdiction. ” According to relevant people, these two contents are not newly changed, but updated in July 2019. According to Zhao Zhan, a lawyer from Beijing Zhilin law firm and a special researcher at the intellectual property center of China University of political science and law, regarding the exemption clause, it is very common to make disclaimers in enterprise contracts and service agreements, which are commonly used by multinational companies and domestic enterprises. For consumers, if they encounter the extreme situation that “the U.S. government orders Microsoft not to provide services to Chinese users”, then Microsoft can be exempted from liability according to this clause. Zhou Jingli, a lawyer from Beijing Jingshi law firm, also pointed out that it is generally called “force majeure exemption clause” in the industry, which aims to avoid the enterprise risks to the maximum extent. As for the place of dispute settlement, it belongs to “agreed jurisdiction”. It is also common for enterprises to list a court or arbitration institution which is more advantageous to itself. < / P > < p > the reporter inquired about the user service agreements published on the official websites of IBM, apple, VMware, sap in Germany, Samsung Group in South Korea and other IT enterprises in the United States. They found that there were similar clauses that mentioned exemption from liability according to national laws and regulations or security requirements, as well as clearly agreed governing terms. < / P > < p > a person who has worked for Microsoft for many years told the reporter that it is unlikely that Microsoft will cut off its supply to the Chinese market unless it encounters extreme circumstances. All along, / P & gt; < p > < p > according to public data, Microsoft has set up a representative office in Beijing since 1992. It has successively set up three world-class technology R & D centers: Microsoft China research and development center, Microsoft global technical support center, and Microsoft Asia Research Institute. Besides Beijing headquarters, it has branches in Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Wuhan, Chongqing, Suzhou and other cities. < / P > < p > according to another person close to Microsoft, the number of employees of Microsoft in China is about 5000. In terms of revenue contribution, although the regional contribution proportion is not listed in the financial report of Microsoft, the revenue contribution of China market is about 2%. Zhang Yi, CEO of AI media consulting, pointed out that there was a strong reaction from the private to the official about the rumor of “cutting off the supply”. On the one hand, domestic consumers were very disgusted with the “blockade” of Chinese science and technology enterprises by the US political forces in recent years, and the public opinion was “one-sided”, which also sent some letters to American enterprises in China On the other hand, it highlights the public’s voice and urgency for the independent and controllable supply chain of China’s IT industry. Fu Liang, an independent IT Analyst, said that the “net net” plan launched in the United States for five major areas, namely, communication operators, submarine cables, application stores, apps and cloud services, has a direct impact on Chinese technology enterprises “going out to sea” and seeking growth points in overseas markets such as the United States, as well as users using Chinese manufacturer services in the U.S. market, while Microsoft and other U.S. companies are also affected What role does the enterprise play and the subtle relationship between the enterprise and the government naturally attract extensive attention. As far as the domestic market is concerned, the actual impact on consumers is not obvious. Zhang Yi pointed out that it is the so-called “think of danger in times of safety”. Behind the intense public sentiment, it industry in China is actually forced to further speed up its self-control. According to Microsoft’s latest financial report for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020 up to June 30, Microsoft’s revenue structure basically presents a situation of “three parts of the world”, including intelligent cloud, productivity and business process, and more personal computing business, with the revenue share of more than 30%. According to the official website of Microsoft in China, Microsoft has many products and services in the domestic market, such as windows operating system, office office suite, azure cloud services, and hardware products such as surface and Xbox. < p > < p > according to the white paper on Cloud Computing Development (2020) issued by China Academy of information and communications, the mainstream echelon of domestic public cloud market is occupied by Alibaba cloud, Tencent cloud, Tianyi cloud, Huawei cloud, baidu cloud and other local manufacturers. Although Microsoft azure takes the lead in the global market, the share of azure and its domestic landing company “century Internet blue cloud” in China’s cloud service market is small and not in the mainstream. As for office suite, China has already had alternative software. A person close to Jinshan Office (369.990, 3.67, 1.00%) said that compared with office, the WPS office suite of the company has been adapted locally, which can grasp the usage habits and pain points of domestic users more accurately. The market share of WPS in mobile phone terminal has reached 90%. Although the proportion of PC terminal and office is still 4:6, but the data in recent months show that the WPS office suite is superior to office Speed is also expected to accelerate. As for the windows operating system, Zhang Yi pointed out that compared with a few years ago, China’s technological research and development capability is able to develop alternative or compatible operating systems. Government agencies, colleges and universities have already begun to make layout, especially in the current environment, which forces the further promotion of technology autonomy and controllability. < / P > < p > other observers also expressed some concerns Microsoft has been working in the Chinese market for 28 years, and there are many products and services. At present, there are few manufacturers that can replace them as a whole. If the new operating system is applied, the replacement cost will be very high. In addition, it is worth noting that GitHub, as a world-famous code hosting service platform, was acquired by Microsoft in June 2018. It is also necessary to be vigilant whether the code on GitHub platform will be subject to political intervention in the future. < / P > < p > < p > the heated discussion caused by the rumor of “Microsoft’s disconnection of supply” is actually a further awakening of the awareness of various fields of society to master the core technology and industry discourse power in the IT field. Li Nan, a former vice president of Meizu, who once participated in the incident of Google and Qualcomm’s pressure on Meizu mobile phones, disclosed that before Huawei Hongmeng OS, Alibaba cloud OS was the one that predicted the risks of international relations and made the layout of its operating system. At that time, Alibaba cloud OS terminals sold millions of devices, but it did not develop and grow. In addition to external pressure and obstruction, the cognition and public opinion environment of domestic consumers are also one of the important factors. At that time, the public generally believed that the role of operating system was limited. Obviously, different from that time, the urgency of consumers’ understanding and demand has been greatly improved. < / P > < p > it should be pointed out that some government departments, military and state-owned enterprises with high requirements for data security have actually adopted the principle of independent and controllable priority in it equipment procurement, and domestic manufacturers in the IT industry chain have also made efforts to layout. And other countries, such as South Korea, Germany, Russia and so on, have already made arrangements to get rid of the dependence of the United States. This is a major trend in the future, that is, to get rid of the constraints of the U.S. business rules, from the bottom infrastructure to the upper level of product and service support, and to be autonomous and controllable.
