Microsoft at the EU Court of First Instance Day One

Microsoft opened its hearing before the European Court of Justice yesterday over the European Commission's antitrust order and fine.  The first day of hearings focused on the bundling aspect of the case, that involving Media Player included with Windows to squeeze out rivals such as Real.  The rest of the case will focus on the interoperability of Windows with software via competitors.  Microsoft claims that it should not be forced to share intellectual property with other companies.  More on this as it develops.

The BBC has a FAQ on the case here.  A profile of the Court of First Instance from the International Herald Tribune is here.  The Times of London has a short report on the first day of proceedings.
