EU Denies Microsoft's Request for an Extension

The European Union today declined to extend the deadline for Microsoft to respond to charges that it did not comply with antitrust remedies.  Microsoft must now meet the deadline of February 15th or face fines of 2 Million Euros per day retroactive to last December 15th.

Microsoft was also denied access to some documents in its file as it had requested earlier.  The company said these documents were essential to its defense.  Previously, the EU indicated that it would not release those documents that contained trade secrets, which it noted dryly was something Microsoft found dear.  Documents where originators had waived confidentiality  were released.

CNN Money has the story.
