"Microsoft Corp. violated the nation's antitrust laws by using
its monopoly power in personal computer operating systems to stifle
competition, a federal judge ruled Monday."
"In a 50-page "conclusions of law" document released late Monday
afternoon, U.S. District Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson said the
software giant violated the Sherman Antitrust Act."
"Specifically, Jackson said that "Microsoft maintained its
monopoly power by anticompetitive means and attempted to monopolize
the Web browser market," which violates the Sherman Act. Microsoft
also violated the Sherman Act by "unlawfully tying its Web browser
to its operating system," the judge wrote."
