I was searching for "Counter Terrorism Act 2008 right to silence" when I first came across this, but after a split-second press of the print-screen key, I figured Google had borked majorly as every link on the SERP was flagged as malware (as was confirmed a second later when searching for "Google").

+ - Microsoft's EU anti-trust appeal thrown out

H4x0r Jim Duggan writes "The EU's highest court has today rejected Microsoft's appeal against the European Commission's anti-trust case. The decision is being celebrated by FSFE, who've worked on the case since 2001 supporting Samba. Microsoft was always going to have to publish some interoperability specs, and thanks to the work of FSFE and Samba, free software developers will not be blocked from using that information."

de la mettrie (27199) writes "The European Court of First Instance has denied Microsoft's appeal of an EU antitrust order to share communications code with rivals and sell a copy of Windows without Media Player. In upholding the $613 million fine, the court decided that European Commission did not err in finding Microsoft guilty of monopoly abuse. The judgment, accessible online on the court's website, can be appealed to the European Court of Justice within 2 months."
