Microsoft Makes Progress in Antitrust Case

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 8:30 pm

Microsoft Corp. said Friday it had made a breakthrough in its antitrust case with the
European Union after an independent monitor outlined what it could do to stave off daily fines of $2.4 million.

EU officials and Microsoft rivals, however, expressed doubts.

“Two years on, Microsoft’s technical documentation remains incomplete, inaccurate and unusable,” a coalition of software companies, the European Committee for Interoperable Systems, said in a statement.

Microsoft lawyer Brad Smith told reporters that he was “very encouraged” by Professor Neil Barrett’s plan to move forward and said it was the most positive step since December, when the company was threatened with the fines.
