Still appeals against the sentence Microsoft – Macitynet.it
Other realities appeal to the controversial and controversial sentence, which in fact limited Microsoft's punishment for the abuses perpetrated in the exercise of its monopoly to something symbolic.
After the states of Massachusetts and West Virginia, the last two survivors of the once large patrol, the Computer and Communications Industry Association and the Software and Information Industry Association have also declared that they want to continue the legal action against Redmond and are preparing to compile the appeal request to the District of Columbia District Court
The two associations, which have always been among the most heated and critical of Microsoft and its market practices, argue that the remedies imposed on Windows manufacturers are too weak and ineffective to prevent recurrence of the abuse of a dominant position.
Recall that Microsoft had been recognized both in the first instance and on appeal as guilty of abusing its dominant position on the market. The justice department, which was Bill Gates' main counterpart with Bush's arrival at the presidential poll, had found a mediated agreement, withdrawing from the legal dispute and leaving some states to carry on the case. Judge Kollar Kotelly who was tasked with examining the demands of the states had in fact rejected any claim to increase the sentence compared to that agreed between Microsoft and the justice department. It is precisely this ruling that the Massachusetts, West Virginia and the two associations will appeal to.
