In 1998, the United States Department of Justice and state antitrust agencies charged that Microsoft was monopolizing the market for personal computer operating systems. More than ten years later, the case is still the defining antitrust litigation of our era. William H. Page and John E. Lopatka’s The Microsoft Case contributes to the debate over the future of antitrust policy by examining the implications of the litigation from the perspective of consumer welfare. The authors trace the development of the case from its conceptual origins through the trial and the key decisions on both liability and remedies. They argue that, at critical points, the legal system failed consumers by overrating government’s ability to influence outcomes in a dynamic market. This ambitious book is essential reading for business, law, and economics scholars as well as anyone else interested in the ways that technology, economics, and antitrust law have interacted in the digital age. “This book will become the gold standard for analysis of the monopolization cases against Microsoft. . . . No serious student of law or economic policy should go without reading it.”—Thomas C. Arthur, Emory University

This is the story of a German-born executive, JK, who immigrated to the United States to aid Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer, Microsofts top honchos to build a commanding software empire. He led Microsofts OEM division that was responsible for sales to PC manufacturers, and drove the deals that made Microsoft Windows the worlds dominating operating system. Find out how much resolve, fortitude, and perseverance were needed to make that part of the PC revolution come true; what strategies were employed to win the Internet browser war; how IBM was beaten; what drove Apple to the brink of disaster; and how shady politicians and hapless competitors eventually goaded the Feds to ensnare Microsoft in a web of antitrust accusations. Peek behind the curtain and be the first-ever outsider to glimpse into Microsofts power nexus. Understand how Microsofts nearly mystical marketing shrewdness and tech prowess are intensely propelled by paranoia and fear of missing the next computing paradigm shift. The press labeled JK Bill Gatess enforcer. No wonder he was called upon as a pivotal antitrust trial witness to defend what loathing competitors labeled Microsofts evil empire. Follow what experts believe was the most protracted, and fierce trial of the century. Relive the courtroom drama, and read the authors critical analysis of the judicial proceedings and their aftermaths. Losing that trial partially started Microsofts demise, and power struggles from within quickened it. Get to know the real forces that altered Microsofts resolve-and fortitude-dominated leadership style. Find out if Windows 8 could be an inflection point, conjuring enough magic to ring in a renaissance and attract the Facebook generation to a born-again modern Microsoft.

Meet the Billionaires: the 1,645 men and women who control a massive share of global assets worth $6.5 trillion. Darrell West reveals what the other 99.99998% of us need to know. With rich anecdotes and personal narratives, West goes inside the world of the ultra wealthy. Meet U.S. billionaires such as Sheldon Adelson, Michael Bloomberg, David and Charles Koch, George Soros, Tom Steyer, and Donald Trump—as well as international billionaires from around the globe. The growing political engagement of this small supra-wealthy group raises important questions about influence, transparency, and government performance, and West lays bare the wealthification of politics, including: • How billionaires can block appointments and legislation they don't like • Why the supra-wealthy moved into policy advocacy and referenda at the state level • Why billionaires run for office in more than a dozen countries around the world

Master's Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Law - Media, Multimedia Law, Copyright, grade: Distinction, University of Edinburgh (School of Law), course: Master Thesis in the LLM in European Law Programme, language: English, abstract: In what has been described as the most important competition law case in EU history the CFI upheld the Commission's finding that Microsoft was guilty of committing two infringements of EC competition law: illegitimately to have refused to supply intellectual property (IP) protected interoperability information to competing workgroup server operating systems (WGSOS), and to have performed an illegal tie of its Windows Media Player (WMP) to its dominant operating system. Microsoft has been labelled "the biggest encroachment on intellectual property in European competition law history" and it is accused of hampering innovation and interfering with beneficial product integration by applying an anachronistic form-based tying test. In the opinion of the author the Judgment is an esoteric masterpiece of obfuscation that despite its considerable volume does little to provide legal certainty regarding the conditions under which compulsory licensing of IP rights (IPRs) will occur, or when technical integration will be deemed legal. Microsoft is of ever-increasing relevance for legal academics and undertakings alike for several reasons: First, since it is the most high profile ruling on the two most controversial issues within EC competition law - compulsory licensing of IPRs and tying - the Judgment will be a fundamental point of reference, especially amid claims that competition authorities' concerns regarding the acquisition and use of IPRs are increasing and that legitimate worries of IP owners (IPOs) are accordingly engendered. Second, high tech markets are increasingly important to consumers and to the global economy, and Microsoft is the "focal point for the ongoing debate about the future direction of the software business" because i
