Statement of Ralph Nader on Microsoft and the Cease and Desist Order Issued by U.S. District Judge Jackson

U.S. District Judge Jackson gave Microsoft a second bite at the apple by not approving the sanctions in addition to the injunction he issued today. He rejected the government's complaint regarding the Microsoft non-disclosure agreements with other corporations that obstruct people and firms from coming forward with information to the Justice Department. All in all, the decision does little to deter Microsoft's arrogant and predatory business practices which will be the focus of other ongoing investigations by the Justice Department and the State Attorneys General.
