"AOL Time Warner sued Microsoft in federal court
Tuesday over AOL's Netscape Internet browser, which ruled computer
desktops until Microsoft began giving its competing browser away.
Many of Microsoft's business practices, including ones in which
the company encouraged computer manufacturers and Internet
providers to distribute its Web browser instead of Netscape, were
found to be anticompetitive by a federal appeals court last year.
AOL, which now owns Netscape, wants Microsoft to cease its
contested business practices and pay damages.
AOL executive John Buckley noted the court ruling and said,
'This action is an attempt to get justice in this matter.'"
