MULTIMEDIA UPDATE: JUSTICE WARMING UP FOR MICROSOFT FIGHT?
The Justice Department filed a legal brief yesterday
concerning Microsoft's "much-anticipated" Windows 95 operating
system and its access to the Microsoft Network. The brief "stops
short of charging Microsoft with any legal violations, but it
provides the most solid indication yet that the Government may
try to force changes in Microsoft's new program" (Edmund Andrews,
N.Y. TIMES, 7/14). According to the WALL STREET JOURNAL, the
memo's language "seems to hint that the government might be
satisfied with some scheme to give PC makers a choice about
buying the MSN software" (Don Clark, WALL STREET JOURNAL, 7/14).
