Microsoft Seeks To Cut Its $1.3 Billion Fine In Europe [reuters.com]
Microsoft will seek to cut its 899 million euro ($1.3 billion) antitrust fine in Europe's second-highest court on Tuesday, marking the last chapter of a decade-long battle with EU regulators.

The European Commission fine, which set a record when it was imposed in 2008, penalized Microsoft for failing to comply with the regulator's order four years earlier to provide information that would allow other products to work with computers running its software.

They are trying to make them feel guilty or win some goodwill when EU says, no ;)
