THE STATES SIDE
Microsoft has clearly mistreated monopoly influence in its usage of its operating system. The fact that Microsoft bundled Internet Explorer with its Windows system without a doubt gave them an advantage over the web browser market; given that many businesses, households and even PDA computers have the Window Software. Microsoft made other web browsers slow even over a modem. To give them a way out of monopolistic illegal practices they included other web browser logos on the windows Operating System, but these other browsers would not work properly or became slow to use. “They manipulated and altered its application programming interfaces (APIs) to favor Internet Explorer over third party web browsers’. (Wikipedia.org)

During questioning, guilty was the only characteristic of Microsoft. When Chairman Bill Gates was giving his testimony he was vague and nonresponsive claiming he did not recall any of the answers to what he was asked. A witness whom worked for Intel recalled Senior Vice President of Microsoft as having stated the intention to “extinguish and smother” rival Netscape Communication Corporation and that Microsoft would “cut off Netscape’s air supply”.

The states and the Department of Justice had every right to bring suite to Microsoft even if Microsoft only received a slap on the wrist. The Sherman Antitrust Act which is also known as “Competition Law “provides the following; (Wikipedia.org)
• “Every contract, combination in the form of trust or other wise, or conspiracy, in restraint of trade or commerce among the several States, or with foreign nations, is declared to be illegal”
• Every person who shall monopolize, or attempt to monopolize, or combine or conspire with any other person or persons, to monopolize any part of the trade or commerce among the several States, or with foreign nations, shall be deemed guilty of a felony”
This law is not in place to stop domination in an industry. Senator George Hoar who was an author of the bill stated that any company that “got the whole business because nobody could do it as well as he could” would not be committing a crime. However, those who intend or use their power to secure their domination of a market would be. This law is to prevent unreal increasing of cost by constraint of buying and selling or supply. “In other words, innocent monopoly, or monopoly achieved solely by merit, is perfectly legal, but acts by a monopolist to artificially preserve his status, or nefarious dealings to create a monopoly, are not”. (Wikipedia.org)
