Microsoft antitrust shackles to be removed on May 12

Posted on Thursday, April 28 2011 @ 21:56:33 CEST by

Neowin reports that on May 12, 2011 Microsoft will finally be free of its antitrust shackles:
Thirteen years later a federal judge has ruled that on May 12, 2011 the antitrust case will expire. Since 2002, U.S District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly has dealt with the case and today said that "May 12 will close an important chapter in the history of antitrust law."

Stephen Houck, a representative for the California group plaintiffs said "We have proved that antitrust law, the underpinning of a free market democracy, is alive and well".


It appears with Windows 8 that Microsoft is making changes that were previously unprecedented as these shackles will be removed. Features such as Cloud Login would have previously faced issues, but with the court case out of the way, Microsoft is free to do as they please.
