Cisco (CSCO -1%) says it will challenge the European Commission's approval of Microsoft's $8.5B Skype acquisition, seeking to prevent MSFT from tightening its grip on web-based video calling. Cisco, who is making a big play on enterprise video, isn’t seeking to retroactively block the Skype deal, but it wants restrictions to ensure interoperability with systems from other vendors.
