U.S. OKs Expiration of Microsoft Antitrust Deal [informationweek.com]

Attorneys for the Department of Justice and several states told a judge on Wednesday that they would not raise any objections to next month's expiration of Microsoft's decade-old antitrust settlement with the U.S government.

The plaintiffs' attorneys told U.S. DC District Court judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly that they believed Microsoft has met the terms of the settlement, which mainly required the company to share Windows APIs and other key technical information with the broader tech industry and provide licenses on reasonable terms.

"We are pleased with today's hearing. As was noted by the Court and the plaintiffs, we are on track for the Final Judgments to expire on May 12," said a Microsoft spokesperson.
